I felt like doing something different today so I got out my pastel pencils which I haven't used for a long time and a couple of soft pastels. The support is Clarefontaine Pastelmat white. Size is 26x30. It's for a competition at my art club where we have been challenged to do a picture for the cover of a book of our choice. This is the Shell Seekers by Rosamund Pilcher. The references for the girls are courtesy of WetCanvas and the background is imagined. It was really nice to create something warm and sunny an a very cold and blustery day.
