It's surprising how much detail you can achieve considering how chunky the pastel sticks are.
Knowing I'd been working with faces I think Laura was having a laugh when she found this book for me. Luckily it was in the charity corner of her local village stores and only cost 50p instead of the original price of nearly £10.
It may have been intended as a joke but it is strangely compelling even if I have to resort to a magnifying lens to see the numbers. I thought I'd start with Botticelli's Venus as he's in the news so much at the moment. I've made a good start but there's a long way to go before you'd know who it's supposed to be.
Turns out that drawing by numbers is way more time consuming than pastels and solvent!
Have a good weekend. I intend to be happily occupied painting the garden shed. Just need to get rid of the cobwebs first. (That's the shed's, not mine).
Bye for now,
