Everyone brought something different to paint on Thursday, so I resorted to an arrangement of dried seedheads and two silk peonies, choosing some at random to make my own composition. They all came from friends and so make a lovely arrangement in my sunroom. They include love in the mist from Anita's garden, wheat stalks from the edge of a nearby field, artichokes from Brian's allotment, teasel and hogweed from Helen and the two silk flowers bought for me by my sister in law whilst out shopping together during a visit to my brother's family. We had a discussion as to what the three rounded pompom seed heads were from - but came to no conclusion, They had little four sided star shapes clustered together - which unfortunately I lost when adding the water to the inktense marks.

I think the soft result proves Inktense pencils don't have to be harsh colours. I did intend to keep some areas dried marks, but got carried away whilst we all nattered the afternoon away with tea and cake.

Ah Christiane has beaten me to the words. What a great memory of the people in your lives through their contribution to your painting.

So glad you like my afternoon's work on this soft little piece. I was quite pleased with the composition but disappointed I did not leave some dry pencil marks here and there.

I love this - it is so fragile and delicate...I didn't know you could get this kind of results from Inktense pencils. This is beautiful.chlessi
