Vegetable still life

This wonderful still life of onions, tomato and cabbage was posted last week-end on WDE. This is done in WC on WC paper (which makes a huge difference -- much better than my sketchbook paper to work on!!)

more pastels

Well, my class is over and can't say that I feel accomplished yet -- but, did do this little kitty from a photo posted on http:// this week-end. She is not as blue in real life as she appears in this photo!

Pastel painting

I am taking a pastel painting class at our local art center this spring. Here is my first full scale painting -- never mind that I didn't have room for all of it on the page!!! But, I am pretty proud of it. Don't know that I'll go in for pastels in a big way -- as I spent approximately 6 HOURS doing this painting during two class periods!! I'm much more of a "quickie" artist!! But, it was good practice for me to have to work slowly and rework the colors -- with all that underpainting!!
