I am so happy that the clocks have finally sprung foward - lighter evenings, summer to look forward to, gives me a little energy rush! Well this last week I managed a day out at the Country Living Fair in London which I will post about later, but the other thing I achieved was a little picture for the "Being Creative" challenge. I have to say I am a tad nervous about showing this "effort". I love pastels and decided that the Being Creative challenge would be good for me to actually use them to try and do a little art - something I would love to have time to go to lessons, but for the future I think.
I littered the kitchen table with the scrummy colours and then - oh my, gonna have to actually make marks on the paper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! found a picture
yes, try and keep it simple, cripes even simple things seem hard! Soon I was scribbling here and smudging there and adding bits here and rubbing out bits there and finally..........don't expect much but it is my first attempt in aaaages.
A scrappy pastel daff!!! Now I know it isn't art gallery stuff or anything like that, but I soooo enjoyed drawing it! Now I have to upload it to the Being Creative flickr group -- now that is nerve wracking!!
Enjoy the spring sunshine.
Speak soon xx
