Going Dotty.. Chalk pastels, drawing workshop, Belfast

A friend gave me a wonderful scarf for Christmas, red with white spots on it. As soon as I saw it, I knew it wouldn't make it as a scarf, because it had a higher destiny, to be immortalised in paint.. How I LOVE a new prop!

However, only the really Tough students took the challenge, and produced lovely pastel drawings. Well done girls! (these are some of my Thursday-Girls) Chalk pastels on water colour paper - which has a chunky groove on it and takes a lot of layering. (On the right you can see two lovey mushroom drawings by G.M. - just her second class!)

We decided that the spotty drawings, overall, had a snowy look to them - Delicious!!
