Today I painted some swatches of the 26 colours that I'm thinking of using for Glenda's commission. I also looked up plants in a book of 'wild flowers', to see which ones would be seen if you were near the seaside.

Now I have a photo of Malcolm to work from and in the background, all you can see is a football pitch and some buildings. He comes from Cornwall so I thought a 'touring' picture might work well. I could imagine him having a ride on his bike and stopping off at a car park near the beach or cliffs. So, I'm going to put the see and some seaside plants and flowers behind him.

I started painting the background (1st Detail Layer) of Test Page 1 for "Man and Bike".
