June Armstrong is offering several free downloadable images to print out at home.

She will be awarding a prize to her favourite ‘Stay at Home’ coloured sheet on her Facebook page June Armstrong Illustration.

When lockdown started, June shared a rainbow picture to colour in.

The artist said she could not imagine then that nearly nine weeks later Scotland would still be in lockdown.

June said: “I hope the colour in activity will keep kids amused and bring joy at the same time.

"The first picture I shared was inspired by imagining the new community at An Camas Mor. My illustrations for children have always shown gigantic rainbows in them!

“The latest picture shows a house with the family members occupied with different Stay at home activities in the windows.

“People have occupied their time in lockdown in many ways: learning new skills, exercising, reading, gardening, decorating their homes and painting their fences. I think the local villages will be looking very spruced up when we emerge from lockdown.”
