A Spring themed necklace and a sketch of trees done while waiting

I made a spring themed necklace as the weather has a definite, if cool, feel of Spring.  I was really pleased with how it all came together as I'd hoped.  I've not learned a lot yet but I used 2 of the techniques I've learned so far :>)

I'm going to do variations on this them, different colours, different seasons.

I must update the Etsy shop with paintings - and I may - just may - do a page for some of these when I makes some more.   What do you think?  
 From a different angle.
I had a puncture this morning :>(  and whilst waiting for the AA to come and put the spare on for me, I sketched the trees I could see.  Nothing brilliant but better than being bored :>)   They were done with Derwent Graphitint.   The colours were really suitable for the cool morning light.  It's better in real life though, the photo doesn't show up the colours quite well enough.

I'll carry on with the series of issues to consider when drawing and painting later this week - life has been a bit hectic and I've not had the brain power left to write the next installment.   Sorry.

PS If anyone lives near Market Harborough, I'm starting a new, additional class after Easter on either a Tuesday or Wednesday (not sure which yet, the college will let me know) as the 2 classes I currently teach there are bursting at the seams and there are some on a waiting list.   So if you want to come to a friendly multi level class - come and sign on :>) ........... painting and drawing and any medium.

The necklace is beautiful! And Yes! Sell them on etsy. Lovely way to branch out.

Good luck with your classes! (wish I was there)

Very spring like colours in the necklace. Oh yes, add some creations to Etsy, I know they'd be popular.

Pity about the puncture, I hate getting those. But good use of a sketchbook during the wait. Colours so rarely come out well on computer screen, no matter how much manipulation takes places. I like the graphitints for sketches too.
