After my trip to the library, I decided it was time to experiment with a new theme for the Clouds of Colour shop. So over the past week, I have been gathering inspiration to paint vegetables and fruit. I will be adding these new prints to the shop soon but for now, here are a few pics of my progress. Enjoy!xobec

My neighbourhood

I thought it was about time I shared a few photos of my neighbourhood- beautiful Nelson! I love living here. It is absolutely brimming with artists, delicious homemade food, seaside cafes, beaches, nature… the list goes on. Above are a few photos of Arlo and I enjoying Nelson as this summer comes to an end. The mornings and evenings are getting a slight chill in the air so we are savouring every last beam of sunlight. Although a hot cocoa by the fire doesn’t sound so bad either…
Have a fab week friends!xobec

Lost in the details

Today I am participating in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This weeks theme is ‘lost in the details’. This is my favourite way to photograph nature, looking at all the intricate details that would usually be missed. Here are a few photos that I haven’t shared on the blog before and that fit in perfectly with this weeks challenge! Have you ever joined in with this challenge? Leave a link so I can check out your post!xobec

Project 365: update


Hey guys! Here is my first week of photos from the 365 Project! I’m so lucky that Arlo loves photos as much as me, it makes projects like these so much fun. We are both enjoying capturing little moments from everyday life. You can follow some of these photos on Instagram too, just look under the hash tag ‘cloudsofcolour365’. Are any of you doing a 365 project? Leave a link below so I can check it out. xo Bec
