On Saturday I went to our printmaking group for some reason not many people turned up for it. I myself was not going to stay long as there weren’t any one to talk to, just when I ready to leave a friend turned up and we started to talk and she demonstrated sola plate to and we play with scape bit of sola plate for a couple of hour. So today I went out to the art supply shop and got myself some sola plates to play with.

I had a great urge to get my soft pastels out and have a play with them this morning seeing as I have neglected them for over a year or so. As I spent last week walking around galleries, gardens and park I decided to take them outside and play plus it’s too hot in my studio to do much work in there. In doing so I have found a renewed respect for the artist who go out and paint wildlife as I found that the beggars just will not stay still long enough so I can take my time and do then justice haha.
So this is a soft pastel of a duck swimming done very quickly I got the shape down fast and just looked and guested the rest but I still think if they just stayed still long it would make life and painting a lot easier haha.

Well we are in to February and it feels like this year has been made up of short weeks. This weekend has been another long weekend but I think it is the last one till Easter, I like that idea as it means, I do not have to stop and start and can just work though. Plus the kids are back at school so there are not so many people on the beaches. Haha
