178th entry...still sunny!

I have done very little art at the moment but am working hard on my art things - if you get my gist!
Saw the Hockney exhibition and can say that I wasn't particularly impressed!  Why? The paintings lacks substance and soul..

I enjoyed achieving this sketch...done at my life class....using a soft watercolour wash followed by charcoal...

174th entry...Can I have an opinion...

'Early Morning in The New Forest' 2012
I have had conflict in my mind with the depth of the original pastel that I put on 173th entry...
Here is an updated version ....What is your opinion?

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
