Coffee for two

This pastel painting was a lot of fun. It took two sessions at Art Club to complete. Measuring approx. 12" by 8" the inspiration was an excellent photograph from Franklin on the Paint my Photo site.

Conte hard pastels on Winsor pastel paper (green) were used, and I drew heavily on the demonstration by Joel Wareing at the Club in April 2014.

Fish on a blue plate

It was a welcome return to Sky Blue Drop-in morning yesterday. The theme was the work of Clare Harrigan, and her use of the colour blue. This is not a copy of one of her paintings, but rather my own composition, painted in her style. While it may not be to everyone's taste, I am pretty pleased with it.

It measures approx 12" by 8" and was painted with Atelier Interactive acrylics on Daler Rowney Aquafine 300 gsm paper.
