Nine hundred followers? That’s crazy! (Almost as crazy as photographing plasticine coming out of a paint tube!)

At this rate, I’d better start thinking of something suitably BIG for the next milestone!

Don’t forget to visit my Facebook page Anna Cull ~ Art from time to time. It occasionally has news, WIP (work in progress) updates and photographs that aren’t posted here.

Shoot it, Sketch it: Double rainbow

One evening last October I noticed a strange light coming in through the window. When I went outside to investigate, I was met with this beautiful sight: a double rainbow over the neighbouring rooftops. These are my three favourite shots.

I drew the houses and trees with an Indian ink brush pen and the rainbows and sky were painted with my trusty Neocolor II watercolour pastels to give the rainbows a naïve, childlike quality. I really like the way they’ve picked up the corrugated texture of the watercolour paper.
