Just a quick post today; as promised the photos from last weeks Saturday Class. I don't usually get my camera out on a Saturday, but everyone did so well I couldn't resist a few quick snaps. The subject was Night Pictures in Pastel, to be completed on dark coloured paper. I have to say, whenever we do pastels there is more than the odd moan: "I don't like pastels..." "I am no good at pastels..." "But they are so messy..."
Well class, in future I am not listening to the moaning, as the evidence shows that you are fabulous at pastels!
Check out these great pieces of art:
A charming atmospheric piece;
There's nothing like a sunset in the snow;
The long arm of the law shows a surprisingly sensitive touch;
Wow, perfectly spooky for Halloween;

Well done class, see you tomorrow!
