I can’t get on with oil pastels Marjorie, it’s interesting to see your technique with them. Love the composition.

Hopefully tomorrow they are blooming. Will you paint them then too? Beautiful work Marjorie!

Thanks for the comments everyone. Yes, topical, Carole - but Tesco also had Easter eggs in!Thanks, Paul and Fiona - working with them seemed to be easier this time, didn't blend much. Regloh, they are now in a vase and I'll probably paint them again.

I love this, Marjorie. Just delightful.
