Illustration Friday - Warning

“Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky at morning, sailors warning.”

As soon as I saw this theme I visualized a red, glittery exclamation mark which has stayed in my head all week - so it had to come out of my head and be created on paper.

For the past couple of weeks I've been working on making my own collage background papers, of which these are the most interesting - the red and blue colours are from raspberries and blueberries - I'd been using kitchen towel to cover my frozen brekkie fruit whilst it was thawing!  See, you really can use anything to create with!  The orange colour was added later using watered down acrylic paint, after reading the above quote - I was trying to achieve a sunset of sorts.  And of course, the centrepiece of the red exclamation mark.  What's it warning about?  I'll leave you to decide ...
