Drawing Is Therapy

West Coast Black Mussel: Soft Pastel on A2

I didn't get to the water colours but I did get my fingers deliciously smudgy dirty with the chalk pastels. These shells are some of my favourite finds. They bend, peel and bleach beautifully to reveal that dusky blueish purple underneath. I haven't worked in pastel for years and I forgot how just much I love the medium.

It is like being a kid again :)
