I started this cat four years ago when I first tried pastels but gave up because it was such a messy medium! Now I'm having another go and finished the cat which I'm quite pleased with, I think it might be one for the exhibition.

I can't believe it is so long since I posted a painting. I just lost the 'knack' with watercolour. I tried a couple of oils but that hurt my shoulder too much. Then I saw a pastel painting video on television and was inspired to unearth my pastels which I hadn't used for about four years. The first one I did was this firecrest and that has encouraged me to do some more.
