That is really lovely. You seemed to have mastered their use very well!

Really beautiful Denise, a great job.

Absolutely brilliant, beautifully done.

That's good,'s well worth persevering with the new pencils.

A lovely result for a first time Denise.

You’ve managed to use the pastel pencils very skilfully and captured a charming scene Denise.

What a super pic....brill.

You are doing very well, lovely pastel .

Excellent work Denise you have certainly cracked the pastel pencils 👌

Good job with the pastel pencils Denise, you seem to master everything you try😊

Beautifully drawn Denise, if I were you I would persist with them, you certainly seem to have done a wonderful pastel.

An excellent first try, so I'd say persevere. Charming picture and clever title. I do hope it is not too long before you are able to paint again, but you are certainly making very good use of this time.

I think this is fantastic Denise!

Thanks for your kind words and support David, Carole, Paul, Lewis, Fiona, Carole, Sylvia, Anne, Bari, Katy, David, Sandra and Diane.

Lovely pastel

I came across some really cheap pastel pencils yesterday. I've never thought of using them before but because I'm unable to paint at the moment I thought, I'll give them a try, even if I put them in the bin. I've just tried them out, I'm not sure if you use them like regular pencils or if you need to blend them. Anyway, it past a couple of hours. Not sure if I will use them again.

My name is, Denise. I started painting at the end of April during the Covid lockdown 2020. I’ve never painted before or had any experience of doing any art. I walked into a shop, bought some watercolours and have been trying to teach myself. I have pain conditions and had to retire early last year…
