pastel sketch at peterborough cathedralYes, I'm still concentrating on pastel sketches, and loving it. This one of people sitting out on the lawn in front of Peterborough Cathedral was done in about 10 minutes using a small tin of 12 pastels. I had to do it at arm's length and carefully blowing the dust away at regular intervals to avoid getting it on the smart pair of pale trousers I was wearing. Pastel dust can blow anywhere.
