Where on earth am I going to get inspiration for colourful names, was the first thought that popped into my head. Before I contacted an artist friend, in the hope he might have some Victorian paint names, I glanced at my 2011 calendar about to be binned (it was sitting in a bag waiting to be put out, thank goodness DH was a little behind with his chores!). Each page had a scene from the UK. I remembered it had a few pictures I really liked, and two were from the town where my book is based.
If you click on the pics they should enlarge.
She will walk past this place many times. The lighthouse will not be there, it is is constructed many years later. However the shoreline will be, and maybe one of those sunsets.
Now I am asking my friends for their old scenic calendar pictures in order to gain further colourful inspiration.
So if you feel so inspired as to add to Elle's catalogue just by viewing the pics above, please add them in the comment box. No prizes, just grateful thanks from me.
