May challenges

 The first challenge I painted in pastels. I hadn't used pastels for a little while and thought they needed to be aired again. The challenge was painted for Paint and Draw Together.

 The second challenge was for a Day Not Wasted - painted in pen and watercolour

Next was an acrylic painting for a new site that Barb Benik has started as Still Life Workshop.

The final challenge of the month was for Studio Atelier (Barb Benik site ). I hadn't used my oils for a while so out they came. I had forgotten how long it takes for oils to dry, and so a lot of the finishing was rushed, if I use oils I must use them on sites that go over six weeks, to give them more drying time.
