Other Artwork An experiment that didn’t work; a bit trippy, and I’m not sure the iridescent bubbles show up on screen. But I like her hair. Just an attempt to get rich deep colour AND variety of texture with colouring pencils. Playing with iridescence, and close-up detail. Just the centre of a bearded Iris, playing with different textures you can get with pastel. And I love these colours. A labour of love for my husband’s 50th birthday. We know much of the three series off by heart! Most of this picture is reflected or refracted light, except for the stars, in the deep, lovely dark. close up of the frost on blackberries, spiderweb and leaves A thank you present for a couple who gave me a huge set of coloured pencils. This was me trying them out. The first pastel I tried, using a set given to me by the lady who now owns it. Three of a collection of jugs I seem to have accumulated; I liked the different shapes and textures, and the reflections in the surface of the black jug. I love rocks, and Scotland. Still learning about pastels though. Scrapyards have such atmosphere, even on a bright breezy day on the Solway. You can find treasure anywhere, if you look. I was inspired by someone’s pastel of a hare, so small but so detailed. The wren on here is slightly smaller than lifesize. these birds seem undaunted by winter weather, hence the sky. Coloured Pencils are often overlooked – as childrens’ toys, not a real medium for art. I disagree! hard to get a good photo to show the fine detail, but this is ok.
