My first pastel pictures made at Mullion Cove Cornwall

These are some of the pictures I produced at my 'Taster' session whilst on holiday near Mullion Cove Cornwall.

They are done in Water Soluble Wax Pastels and are my first attempt in this particular medium.

The first is called 'On Moonlight Bay' because of the tranquil feeling of the sea, the sand and the moon shining on the water from behind a dark broody cloud.




The second is 'Tree in the early morning sunrise' with a black shadowy tree against the distant rising sun.




Next is Remembrance ' At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them' a family of shadowy figures stand to attention against the evening sunset, a blend of Poppy Red, White and Green.



And lastly 'Moody hues' a seascape in different hues trying out different colours and blending.



Your thoughts on my efforts would be much appreciated.

If you are ever at Mullion Cove on the Lizard Peninsular in Cornwall, why not pop in to 'Mullion Meadows' and see Anthony in his Gallery and maybe try his 'taster' sessions.

Also see Chocolate being made and sculpted into all sorts of forms.

Honey Cosmetics for a variety of natural cosmetics made using natural ingredients and Cornish honey.

There's a cafe.

And Cornish Made with hand made jewelry, hand knitted baby clothes and cardigans, cards, sun catchers and a mirriad of other things.

Also a really nice Scrapbooking and Card making shop at the rear of the complex near the car park.

It really is worth visiting..

I've been to visit that Gallery, and it is stunning, as are your works of art. I did have a go Anthony is so helpful and encouraging. I've always wished i could paint, and he made me beleive that I can - I'm not so sure!
