The girls and I had a go this evening (I drew round a bean can) and I am surprised and pleased with mine. I really got into the zone doing them. What’s also interesting is that the colours I chose to use influenced the outcome. The green has a plant/outdoor motif, the red and grey is more space like and the pinks look like sweets. Totally unconscious changes in style. Weird, but cool.

Now I want to make a giant one
