Playing in my visual diary

Not achieving much, maybe after concentrating on completing the collage project I need some time off.
Firstly there's a quick paint sketch, one of a few in my visual diary, again on the mining theme. I've rotated this and it's the 'wrong way around" (there is a 'poppet head in it which is not the right way up), but I thought it looked better that way, or any other way in fact except the right way up.
I tried pastels - still don't really like the way they feel in my fingers but I've bought a whole roll of black building paper so I'll persevere and maybe I'll actually create something worthwhile ...eventually! This was a warm up exercise.

The face is collage papers that I've painted on then cut and put together, touching up roughly with fact the whole thing was very quick and rough - I've been thinking of using this kind of thing for a base for painting.

I like the energy in the painting and the pastel and the collage head is great. :)
