Ancient Art Supplies

The inlaws had a garage clean-out and came across some old school art supplies. There were pastels, charcoal and all the paper in the world, including some vintage “Daler” (from before it was “Daler and Rowney”) watercolour paper. Stacks and stacks of it. Luckily, my boyfriend’s dad’s hobby never took off so he could kindly donate it to me… about 25 years later! These portraits of Amy Winehouse and Anna Calvi were quite a challenge, but at least I’m now no longer a pastel virgin. Eek, it smudges!
