My home is full of little collections of things picked up, stowed in a pocket and carried home. Feathers, shells, bits of sea worn china and jars filled with sea glass, driftwood, pine cones and pebbles. They all come in useful for observation studies which I really enjoy. Sometimes when thinking about what colours to choose for a particular painting I'll turn to some of these objects and use them for palette inspiration.
