First Day of the New Term

We started the term off with an observation lesson.  My art teacher brought in chilli peppers to draw or paint.  I chose 3 and instead of doing a tonal drawing like I would normally do, I decided to use soft pastels. 

I did find using them a little challenging to get the colours right however, I was really pleased at how quick they were to use and I was really happy with the final painting.

I have posted the painting under the Pastel Paintings tab.
