Pastel painting

I've just finished a pastel painting for an entry into a local Rotary art show, it's of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The other two photos are of more journal pages. The images are my original sketches scanned and printed out, them stitched onto my hand decorated papers.
It's dusk at the moment and the weather's very mild, I have my studio windows open and there is a chorus of birds, crickets and the occasional frog, nature's wonderful. Very shortly it will be the thud of the possums running across the roof, they sound like a herd of elephants, but they're very cute, sometimes one takes the wrong turn and ends up down the chimney causing a great commotion as it tries to find the front door. Ah life in the bush.
