Three Candles, 15 August 2013

A quick, late afternoon sketch following an early finish to a portrait painting session. Depicted are three candles, in contrasting colours. The drawing was made in pastels on Daler Rowney Ingres paper, and is around 9″ x 12″ in size.

Daffodils #1

A pastel and pen sketch of some daffodils, drawn this afternoon at the dining room table. Until this past Autumn I hadn’t used pastels for getting on for 20 years. At the moment I’m still struggling to re-acquaint myself with them in all honesty.
