Felted landscapes at St Georges

Here's my pastel painting of Stewarts Garden Centers flowering meadow
and the children's felted picture of it.

Silk painting at Brackenbury

The children worked on some lovely pictures using silk paints. This
design is based on my painting of Stewarts Garden Centres flowering
meadow.

Four in a row!

It's a challenge doing one pastel portrait but four in a row is nerve
racking! These are a lovely selection of characters and great fun to
draw. A bit of finishing off to do but nearly there!

Character portraits

These two make a lovely pastel portrait. I'm glad you're pleased too Kazz. Nina

Pastel flower meadow with reception class at Hillview Primary School


I've been working with Hillview as artist in residence to make a collage out of the childrens pastel flowers as part of the terms 'growing' theme. I showed the children how to use the pastels and looked at a selection of flowers and these were the results! Thier flowers are nearly as colourful as the ones at Stewarts!

Leaky garage ....

My workshop papers were sodden after a sudden downpour! Not one for
throwing things away my pastel class suggested a demo using 'wet on
wet' pastel technique. Joyce leant me some photos of chickens from
which I composed this! It'll be on display at Dorset Arts Week in a
few weeks time.
