Pastel Flower Doodling

I only had time for a quick craft today, we've had visitors for most of the day.  My inlaws have been here and they have taken my boys away for the Easter weekend. They are all going to go on the Severn Valley Railway tomorrow and my older son LOVES steam trains so is delighted to be going (again). 

These were just quick made-up sketches that I made with some oil pastels. They aren't quite finished, 'work in progress' I believe they are called.

This is the two of them together:
and this is the green one in more detail (sorry, I can't show you details of the blue one, the photo I took is out of focus, oops!)

My boys have been enjoying having their dad home for a few days (he's going back to China on Monday) and he has had fun doing things with them.  Today (before his parents came) he was entertaining us all with a humorous singing and dancing rendition of 'Singing in the Rain' (very appropriate) inside with a brolley - which was amusing us all until he accidently stepped on one of my son's pride and joys - a big Lego Star Wars model - oops! [You'll have to use your imaginations here, no photos, sorry!] 

Enjoy your Easter Weekend

Oh my life, this isn't doodling it's full on art! Your pictures are beautiful. You are a very talented lady, you have inspired me to have a go at drawing a bit more. Thank you

Aww, what a lovely comment! I am very pleased that I've inspired you back into drawing and look forward to seeing what you do, I bet you're brill! Pastels are a good medium to start (back) with, nice quick results! :-)
