My new pastel pencils


The other day I was given a lovely surprise! I gift voucher for my favourite art shop as a belated birthday present. Thank you Leah!!! So yesterday I went in and spent ages walking around trying to decide what to buy. I ended up buying some arcylic paints and some pastel pencils which I have never used before. I've always wanted to use pastels but found them too bulky so when I saw these I just had to try them. This is my first drawing that I did quickly just to get a feel for them, I think I'm going to enjoy using these!!!

Thank you so much for your warm message. I have turned the harvest post into a print give away. So hopefully it would be ok to enter you into the draw if this is ok with you?

Love your sketch also by the way, I bet it will look awesome painted.

I love to buy new art materials and then to get them home and play with them for the first time! I look forward to more from your newly discovered pastel pencils! :)

Glad you liked your present and you have obviously put it to good use. Love this pic. Somehow it reminds me of us.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog! I love what you've done with the pastel pencils! I have some but haven't had near this success with them.
