Almost done

Summer's tears -oil on canvas 60 x 45 cm

Early summer is my very favourite time of year as my garden awakens from a harsh, barren winter to a profusion of glorious colours. A sight that never fails to lift my spirits and inspire is this beautiful rambler adorning a rustic shed in a swathe of pink perfumery. Can you smell the roses?

Back to the drawing board. . .

"Summer " -pastel pencil on Canson paper
I feel the need to draw more people. . .so out come the pastel pencils and away we go. I love the gentle feel of this one. . .and the sunlight on her face. . .and the movement of her hair.
