Earlier this year there were local reports about people gathering in public parks, to enjoy the lovely warm weather. But when they all left, all of their litter was left behind. I wanted to try to capture this in my second image of the eight colour palette of Huely*. Because honestly we can do better! It should be a given that you pick up after yourself in any public place, and likewise if you're out in nature.

* Huely is a limited colour palette challenge I run during July. The name is the combination of Hue (colour) and the month its held (July). For each image I use a maximum of 5 colours (+ black and white) to paint my images.
