Derwent Coloursoft Pencils & a canvas bag

Our last sessions before Christmas; the first anniversary of Art Circle and a Christmas Party... another excellent week.  

Thank you to everyone who has joined me in a creative session this year; Lytham & St Annes Libraries and visitors to the blog.  I love your company!

We're back on 6th & 7th January 2016 - that's 11 - 12.30 at Lytham & St Annes Libraries respectively.

Have a fab Christmas and very best wishes for a wonderful New Year!


The starting point this time was to make a drawing of a canvas shopping bag then fill it / place it in a context or leave it as it is.

We used artist quality, colour pencils which are difficult to rub out so we had to be creative with "mistakes".  Lovely results everyone - well done!





Tommy experimented with different colours to add shadow and light - think French Impressionists:  we'll be coming back to this approach in the New Year.

Derwent, Coloursoft Pencils are lovely to use.  There not cheap but my set of 72 have lasted 11 years and have been used by approx. 4,500 people including children who probably use the colours the most vigorously!
