Still hunting Colour on my own Land

Down by Soak this morning

collecting from little puddles of clay

all slightly different colours

some very nearly white
and some if you open this up larger
with many wriggly lines in the surface

some just tiny and softly rosy

some came home with me

I shall leave them to dry out
and then make paint

Heres a beauty I will go back
and harvest later

You really are an intrepid dye-hunter Trace.

I just love that so much of what we need to make art is freely available.
