Day 340 of 365 illustrations

Today is my mums birthday – Happy birthday, Mum! – so we spent most of the afternoon and evening visiting, cooking dinner, eating ice-cream cake, watching movies, swimming, doing birthday things.

While we were there I spied a very interesting pack of brightly coloured water soluble oil pastels.


My mum is a wonderful artist so it’s hardly surprising to find these sorts of things lying around, it also wasn’t surprising to see a lovely big ol’ sketchbook sitting right next to the oil pastels either. Obviously I had to have a play.

I’ve never really used oil pastels.

I may never really use them again either. Not my cup of tea. You have so little control over how they make their mark!


Here’s what happened…






25 days to go, plus one for the leap year.

Can you believe that?!
25 +1 days to go!!
