Sleep was evading me last night so I was up well before dawn and could see it creep in across the sea and land. I grabbed a couple of quick shots with my iPod camera and once tweaked with Instagram they almost become a pastel painting in the making.
I thought I'd try my hand at the scene with the light just visible, sillouetting the trees. Its not what I saw in my head and my skills with pastels are hit and miss, mostly because I use them infrequently.
I'm using a variety of mediums lately to try to get out of this slump, who knows what it will be tomorrow. Inspiration - the kind that fires me up and has me anxious to get into the studio - is missing right now. It will return and meanwhile, I'll potter and tinker with things I don't usually do and before you know it, I'll be back in the swing of things again.
