New Crayons

Do you remember how exciting it felt to have a new packet of crayons? All arranged in beautiful hues, neatly ordered, sharp points, endless possibilities...

I got these soft pastels as a birthday present last month. I've not really used these for drawing (they are the chalky kind), but the sun came out on Thursday morning and I decided to give them a try.

Rather than idly flitting on the internet during my coffee break, I decided to draw a picture instead, and this fruity sketch was the result. Sometimes I find it best to crack on and just make a mark on the paper, rather than worrying about setting aside lots of time or effort.

Here's to snatched moments...


  1. I love new packs of crayons. Your drawing is wonderful, I hope that you find a few more snatched moments!
