|Pen and watercolor by Beatrix Potter|
from The Tailor of Gloucester from the collection at the Tate Museum
I did not have the pleasure of reading or listening to Beatrix Potter as a child so this drawing does not have any real memories for me. The colours drew me into the watercolour more than the images. The earrings did not come easily to me ---- My personal preference is for very simple earrings - I like my necklaces to do the talking. Therefore, my earrings both picked up the blue colour from the beautiful background tapestry.

I can see another very beautiful pair or two using fibre in my mind's eye. Perhaps I will try to translate them later.
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
