In early 2022, I joined a volunteer group that does two mornings a week repairing, tidying and generally looking after our local park and woodland SSSI site. The volunteers and wardens have become good friends and as a thank you at the end of that year, I decided to give them all a hand-painted Christmas card. This painting is one of those cards. It also gave me the chance to learn how my soft pastels and pastel pencils would perform on a surface I’ve not used or even considered before, namely watercolour paper. I must confess I really don’t get on with watercolour, but at least using the paper to do these cards has opened up another option for future artwork.
