Original Pastel Artwork
There’s nothing like an exhibition deadline for motivation so I worked at developing my pastel techniques and eventually produced some artwork this summer. It was all helped by attending a great course run by Sarah Bee, an artist who paints with pastel over acrylic underpainting. I spent three days under her tuition at Jack Beck House, a wonderful centre for painting in the Yorkshire dales. The lovely food made by Norma and her husband was equally as good!
The Wirral Society of Arts is celebrating its 70th anniversary this autumn with two exhibitions, one of which is at the Atkinson Gallery in Southport. I already have connections there with selling scarves in their shop and I love visiting Southport by train every now and then; a free journey as I’m over that certain age. I was pleased to have the piece accepted that I did on the course, so it will be ready for handing in this November
