Ullswater Glow

Posted by Margaret Shaw on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, In : New Artwork 
This was painted as a demo piece at the Penrith Arts Festival.  As I'm not keen on being watched as I work I found myself explaining to people about pastels and inviting them to have a go ( only 1 lady accepted -people didn't want to be watched either ).  A few people did pop back as the day went on to see how the work progressed.  I forgot to take photos - so no work in progress page for this one.
