What a fabulous day! I had dabbled with pastels many years ago without much success, so I thought I would give Sara's workshop a go to see with some guidance things would be different and they were. Sara guidance and pace was excellent and I produced a really nice work of art( I'm the one holding the Sheep pic in the course images). I learnt so much that I am now very confident to use pastels for future projects.
Thanks Sara
