Pastel portrait

Hello!

I have been painting portraits in pastels recently.

This is a portrait of my partner who is sketching me. He is also an artist so we sometimes draw each other.

Museum visit and sketch

Hello!

Today I visited Royal Airforce Museum in North London. It’s in my neighbourhood but I had never visited there.

They opened a new permanent exhibition called ‘First World War in the Air’ in January this year.
