All done in oil pastel on roughly A2 around.. march-ish time.
I really wish I had the chance to take life drawing classes sooner, my first year at uni being the first time I'd ever done it. Having a teacher on top of it all to push and poke me in the right direction was a massive help as well. 'Twas a nice gradual build-up over the months to the point where I could sit for a good few hours non-stop, concentrate on one picture and not feel the constant urge to wander off and put the kettle on.

Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuun some sunflowers (and a wee bee, who knew!!). Painting on kitchen tiles is certainly a new experience... so are the sunflowers for that matter. Took a while but I think I did an alright job; certainly my 'clients' upon viewing didn't demand I immediately expunge it from the tiles and beg for forgiveness for my hideously rendered flora.
I'd get a close-up of the bee but sadly with my non-existant camera skills I wasn't able to get a photo that wasn't blurred to buggery. Suppose we'll just have to admire it from a distance.
