I am pretty proud of myself tonight. I have never been able to draw very well but i always liked playing with colours. I have been to an art class for an hour for the last three weeks and the picture above was a still life I did in pastels. It may be amateurist by anyone elses standards but i think it is the best thing i have done for years! I think i might frame it and put it on the wall in my craft room.
Week 1 was colour me calm and this was as far as i got with my picture. An hour goes pretty quickly when you're doing this.
Week 2 we were learning different techniques as above and practising them. It also makes you look at how artists have painted their pictures and notice the techniques they have used.
Week 3 was the still life and also was unfortunately my last class as I am now away and will miss the last one.
I have been inspired though and encouraged to do more so i think i will buy some pastels and just have a go.
