I have been a follower of Margaret Dyers blog for a while now, and particularly enjoyed her postings on the workshop she held in France this summer and on impulse one Saturday night I decided to order her DVD The Figure In Pastels. Its not very long, about 27 minutes but at this stage in my development served as a very useful reminder of many of the things I know but often forget and also gave me a different approach in a couple of areas - more of which later. So all in all I am very pleased with it and these first two pastel sketches are a what I knocked out on some recycled Pastelmat the day I received it. I'm looking forward to doing something from life using Margarets method later in the month.
This one is something thats been in my head for a while, its from a photo I tokk in the US of some enormous and impressive trees on a golf course.
