Waiting for the tide, Oban

Waiting for the tide, Oban
Soft Pastel on Colourfix paper
19 x 27 inches

I just got back from a walking holiday in Glencoe to find out I'd won the Pastel Guild of Europe's Get Dusty landscape competition with this painting- superb!!

Can't wait to try out the set of Girault pastels prize, I've never seen them here in the UK.

I just loved how these boats were sitting in the mud at funny angles and thought that it would make a good but challenging composition.
