Every Cloud has a Silver Lining by 

Soft pastel and charcoal on brown canson pastel paper

The theme for my Art Society this month was “umbrella”. I left this to the last minute and was really not happy with how it was going. I actually decided that I wasn’t going to bother with the challenge this month so folded it up and threw it in the bin.
About half an hour later I started to wonder what would happen if I brushed over it a bit with a wet paintbrush so I fished it out of the rubbish and started to play.
In the end I have quite a loose sketchy drawing on paper with crease marks lol!
