Trying to Be Creative!

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


  1. It is absolutely gorgeous. I would hang that on my wall. I can't comment on the technique but I love the look of it.

  2. I'm so impressed. Wish I could draw like that.

  3. You go girl... Fun, fun fun.... Make me want to get mine back out.

  4. so pretty, love it, wish i could paint or draw.

  5. Lovely! I must get back into drawing again. MInd you, I could draw in the dust that coats my dining room this week :-O
    I have not used pastels since I left school,they're good for a nice smudgy effect.

  6. You are so courageous!! I know how difficult it can be to share a picture, especially on the interweb where so many can see it! I think its a beautiful pastel picture, and Im so happy that you took the plunge to create it and to share it! I hope you'll be joining in with the April theme too, looking forward to seeing more of your lovely work!

    Sending love
