In my last sketchbook post I said that I was going to carry on and start using my old oil pastels that I have had since I was about 16.
Many are now broken but the colours are still as bright as ever.
Even the original box ix still hanging in there!
I can see a few more cards in the pipeline. With the oil pastel pages I think that I shall print off these pictures and mount them on to card.
On the left as you look at the pages the roses are in oil pastels, the leaves are in watercolours with pen to highlight details. The other page shows pen, paint and soft pastels.
A complete change in direction then comes by swapping to charcoal.
I think that I shall use the pastels on some more pages. The bright colours also remind me of the summer that we all hope will appear soon!!
Have a good week.
PS. I have found two City & Guilds Sketchbook distant learning courses and I am tempted to use the money I will earn exam marking to sign up for it. What do you think?...........
