I took the dog for a long walk around the local meadows tonight and the warm but fading light was just so beautiful against the cold blue greens in the trees but the fields were still bathed in that same eery light. We do get some wonderful sunsets and sunrises here in Cambridgeshire and, though I often moan about the lack of hills, I know I would definitely miss the vast stunning skies. I made a quick pastel sketch of the colours I had seen when I got home. The composition is part visual memory, part imagination. When I get my pastel box, I can take them all out with me and do some more like this - I can't wait. One day I'll get to Stonehenge to see the Summer Solstice sunrise.. Oh well, maybe I'll be there next year. Now, where did I put that druid gown :)
And finally, Renske asked to see a picture of my Loxley four tray pastel box. Here it is with two of the four trays taken out. I don't have a lot of pastels at the moment, and they are so expensive, so it will be a long time before I fill this up! My lovely wise old cat Tom is being his usual self and trying to look cute by posing for the photo !
