So today has been a good test for me. Armed with Flora's words of encouragement... "Remember, the point of this exercise is to gather inspiration and practice SEEING. You cannot do this the wrong way. Your way is perfect. Enjoy." a pencil and some brand new pastels I've got no idea how to use, I created these....
And this is what I threw together with my pastels. I've actually had them for years but never even opened the box. I've never used pastels before so there was a good reason to dig them out tonight. Again I looked around for something to draw. I needed something quick, spontaneous (it's getting late), what's in the fridge. a strawberry it is. I do love strawberry's.
Delicious don't you think?
So there we are. Not sure I filled the brief exactly but I did have fun so I guess my way is perfect!
Thanks Flora for pushing me to do the things I may never have done otherwise.
"Art has given me so much. If I can pass it on and inspire even one other person to live their own creative passions then I'm a very happy artist indeed "
