Now don't get me wrong … I'm as fond of a pastel hue as the next girl ... who spent her formative years in the eighties.
But the pastels I refer to are these …
Until recently … very recently … I had never touched them, perused them or used them. But that's all changed. Inspired by Shawna's recent use of them in her portraits I decided to give them a whirl.
And that's where it started … now I may have a little crush on them … now I may even be a bit stalkerish with them.
Here's my very first attempt … it's safe to say I hadn't a clue what I was doing … but I do know it was fun.
Messy, smudgy fun.
Here's my second attempt … some random guy from the newspaper … who can't complain that I made his face soooo long.
And then my third attempt. I gave Adam Goodes a go … he's an AFL footballer and the current "Australian of the Year".
Hubby says his ears are all wrong … I say who cares!
Then my fourth attempt … a little sail boat on Sydney Harbour.
Attempt number five. A little flight of fabrication, fantasy and fun.
And there you have it … five pictures in two days. I'm clearly in the throes of a new and steamy romance … five dates in two days IS a little excessive.
I must take a break … pull myself together … perhaps allow myself a little treat … pastille anyone?
