I started working with Oil Pastel on paper. I enjoy how it blends, and how close I can get to the table. I certainly drag my hand across my work more than I'd like (terrible technique I know)!

I remember this to be my first 'proper piece', in watercolour on paper.
I'd painted for years before, mostly for fun, but really wanted to challenge myself to do something more thoughtful. It was actually a very hard time in my life, I really didn't understand who I was at the time.
This was a self portrait. I turned off all the lights, and lit Diwas everywhere in my room. I painted.
