Painted pages

Those dye-painted pages lured me into sitting down and studying the freesias. The way the petals fit together in the bud is intriguing, and you'd never notice unless you were "looking through drawing".A pigeon sat outside the window and let me have a really good look at him (?her), with lots of suspicious head-turning. What vacant eyes full of evil intent these birds have. The ruff of feathers behind the neck is interesting, too.

Having the painted pages makes it easy to get started and keep going. My aim is to fill the page, and to see something new.
