May '14 - challenges

While waiting for the challenges to be set, I painted this picture in oils of a lovely summer day. It made me feel quite summery.

This is the challenge by A Day not Wasted,of a scene in Kenya. 


Paint and Draw together offered this challenge of a beautiful slipper orchid. For this I did a pastel drawing.
I have had a bad sciatic pain which has been getting worse. I'm on my back more than on my feet, so oils or watercolour have been out of the question.This study was also the  challenge put to us by Lela  of Paint and Draw Together.
