T for tuesday

Here is my contribution for T for tuesday. I must comment for Elizabeth's benefit, that this was a lovely cup of tea, of course served by ME.
This is a pastel drawing in my sketchbook.  I have always avoided using soft (chalk) pastels in my books, because of the smudging, but I have found I can smother them with hairspray.  It alters the colours a bit, making them darker, but really I am finding I am enjoying getting messy with pastels again.

I am also NOT working very hard this week as we are having quite a heatwave and my studio is not bearable, being just a converted verandah.  Of course I am also keeping up to date often with what is happening on the fire front, not much activity yet, but I am watching!

Happy Creating!
