The Pastel Guild of Europe has announced the winner of the monthly challenge. The theme for January 2010 was Animals – wild life. You can find all the entries in the gallery here.
Ruth Mann has re-discovered art just over 2 years ago and soon realized that the soft pastels were the right medium for her. She has done mainly wildlife and animal art so far but she is trying a lots of different subjects and developing her style with the help of two art classes and the internet forums. Ruth is married and lives in rural parts of Norfolk, England with her husband, dog and cat. She still does not have the web presence, but is working on it.
