A new medium

Today I have been playing with a new medium. I dabbled in pastels for an eye study a few months ago but thought I'd give it a proper try with a cat portrait today.


Be gentle - it's my first ever pastel pencil picture and it is full of errors and I am not sure I like the medium - it's very messy and I can't seem to get the fine details as you cant press hard enough and sharpen them to a good point, but I will persevere - not least because I have bought the wretched things. I also used a cheaper paper which I know was a mistake.

I also did a bit of scrapping (busy day!) and made this for a scrap squad sketch and for a challenge at the A Trip Down memory Lane cybercrop.

Scrapper friends do check out the cyber crop on the facebook group HERE      

It is a themed crop butt here are so many gorgeous classes ... and yes I am Mrs Peacock
