    Great pastel work, love the color and texture!

  • Thanks Cindy! It’s quite a challenge using only the basic primary colours. I’ve been trying to avoid using black lately, so it was a bit of a change going back to it for this one. It’s been fun to do something quick and out of my comfort zone :)

    Love the ‘marble looking’ background.
    Yeh, a challenge, I bet!! You did good, good luck in the competition!!

  • Thanks :) It was quite fun playing around with the layers on this one. The new pastels seemed to handle the layers really well.
