Schmincke soft pastels on Clairefontaine Pastelmat, 12" x 9.5"
Who knew that when I logged out of here on Christmas Day that I wouldn't be back for a month?! So, for the first time in years, I've reached Week 4 and not yet posted in Leslie Saeta's '30 in 30' - gasp!
I hope to be back to frequent posting now and I'm looking forward to being able to revisit and comment on the blogs of those of you who have them.
This morning I was with my friend Rachel who has the loveliest mugs - this one a Cath Kidston. I took my pastels with me and she brought hers down so we had great fun painting them!
I love the vibrancy and immediacy of pastels and the way you can get your hands right in there but I also love oils, acrylics, watercolours, pen and ink, graphite, etc. I love them all for different reasons. Do you have a favourite?
