    Oh my GOODNESS! This is just brilliant! There are lots of the little darlings around at the moment! They always seem to visit when Autumn comes around – LOL! I can’t believe the magic you do with those pencils and pastels Karen. You are just BRILLIANT!

  • You are way too generous you lovely lady – thank you Lynda. We have pet mice but haven’t had any wild little ones come to visit – I think our cat would quickly fix that situation!!! :)

    Bravo Karen…You have made something quite endearing out of these little pests!!…Oh dear, I have one (or two?) in my kitchen that will have to be dealt with and this doesn’t make it any easier. :(….Fabulous work, as always!

  • LOL – would you like to borrow our cat Meg – although I really hate to think of them being attacked by a cat. Thank you so much for your generous comments Meg!!! :)

    I just love these Trompe Loeil artworks of yours. They are so clever!
    Question, how do you go about sealing the pastel when it’s on wood?

  • Thank you Sarah – I usually apply 3-4 light coats of fixative (and I do get some sinking and darkening of colour which I allow for), followed by 4 generous coats of satin spray varnish. This seems to give a good, durable finish to the pastel.

    How delightful! Karen your a genius, Id love to have a go with Pan pastels one day…

  • Thank you so much Maria. I love them as you know – but there’s only a hint of the pan pastels in this one – mainly for the shadows, because they give such a nice soft look :))
