darwin college in pastelsThis is the last pastel sketch drawn in Cambridge last Sunday afternoon. I'd met up with a few local artists, and we sat on the grass along with lots of other people, compared notes and sketched. 

I was still sketching with soft pastels, starting off with a rough outline using a black brush pen on Ingres tinted pastel paper. 5"x7"

Afterwards we walked across to the pub at Silver Street bridge for a pint and more chat. A nice afternoon all round.

Today we launched the new programme of four videos concentrating on painting snow in oils. For more details please click here.
