Pastel on Pastelmat, 9 x 13 inches
I've painted this little Pastel for the Leicestershire Pastel Society annual exhibition next month. I've called it Sunlight Sequins for obvious reasons - those lovely sparkles of pure light in the water amid the dark of the tree reflection, and that's what drew me to paint the scene.
Next, I may try some....Watercolours! Rub eyes, look again...yes, Watercolours! I haven't ventured into the medium for some years, but I'm itching to have a go again. Just need to break the ice and DO one to conquer the fear. Watercolour done properly, is the most difficult medium in my eyes - it's a one-hit chance..if it doesn't come off, in the bin it goes, whereas an Oil or a Pastel can be scraped or scrubbed back and repainted.
Wish me luck...over the top I go
