Toy Story!

By AngelaR
Went to Lille for the day last week on Eurostar. The Christmas Market opened that day. Here is a stall that was full of tin toys - it was the cowboy with his lasso that caught my eye - the whole collection were just amazing, so brightly coloured, so many different subjects and sizes.

Comments and crits welcome - please look large - many thanks.

Saturday 1st - seem to have run out of new work, so some 'oldies' may be coming up in the next few days in revised versions. Will have to see how creative I can be. Also, new arrival of a pup due next weekend - so will be a bit busy for a little while (with camera at the ready). Look forward to trawling the galleries still - see you soon.

Thanks Annette - clarity not as good as I'd hoped, due to using the little camera.

I think its great. I like the way you have focused on one toy. He is the leader of the pack.

This is fun, at first sight it's cluttered but now I'm seeing some strong individual details.

Thanks Mavis, Moira, John and Mike - they were good fun. Didn't bring much back in the end, but plenty there if we'd wanted to.
