Hello my friends I hope life has been kind to you this week. I feel that after the late summer sun Autumn has definitely arrived in Ireland. It’s a lovely season but not great if leaves need constantly cleared because the house is up for sale ! Oh well!
This weeks project is all about stillness and reflection. During the week of good weather here I took lots of walks in some of our gorgeous local forests and gardens. One garden at a place called Castlewellan has a fountain and pool with water lilies.
Taking time out in the sun was fabulous. Time to take a breath and to be thankful for my surroundings. I felt inspired!
I particularly love water in nature. My picture and tutorial tries to capture the essence of the stillness and peace I felt.
Many of you have been kind enough to purchase the soft pastels that I use in my work from my Amazon store front. I’m very grateful for your support in this. I thought it might be helpful to see them in action and to demonstrate how you might combine them in a stamping project. I realise that the video is more of an invitation to follow my creative process rather than a technical step by step. Nevertheless I hope you feel inspired to use pastels along with your other art supplies in your own creations.
Please see the ‘more’ link in the description below the video for all product links.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and all your encouraging comments both here and on YouTube which mean the world to me!
Next week’s project is back on land. I hope you can join me again.
Get creating, be brave and enjoy the adventure!
