    1. I was going to try to gather a few together for the Dorset Art Weeks in 2014 but it may take some time! It's not often I have my eye in for painting. Half the problem is subject matter, finding the free photos or paying for some of them and then I usually have several to make one montage. While I'm on the roll though I will keep going!!

  3. Beautiful! I'm not familiar with pastel pencils are they like chalk or colored pencils?

    1. Hi Janet, they are more like chalk. I do often use a thin base layer of soft pastel before going back in with the pencils to blend the colour.
