|A couple of Limeys - Jez|
Pitt pen, coloured pencils and digital framing
The Three Muses this week asked us to create something using Turquoise and Lime Green. I asked myself what I could paint with Lime Green, and the answer was obvious - Limes. I even found that I had pencils labelled Lime Green and Turquoise in one of my many sets of coloured pencils, so it was meant to be.
When I was younger English people were often referred to as "Limeys", mostly by Australians and Americans. This seems to have died out in favour of other nicknames. The name Limeys was derived from the fact that from the 1800s the British Navy issued lime juice to their sailors to help prevent Scurvy, which is a rather nasty illness caused by lack of Vitamin C.
