New Piece


So I signed up for the Suzi Blu class to learn a new way of doing faces. I was excited to use Prisma pencils for the 1st time. They are lovely to use and I had fun creating this piece.
The BG was done using another supply for the 1st time, Shiva paint sticks. Anyway from this humble beginning with the pencil and with the tutelage of Suzi I hope to be able to create more using pencils.



And I just had to share this piece of art, No it wasn't created by me (wish it was) it is entitled "Natural Beauty" and is the work of Dyanne Parker in Florida. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her and had to have her.This is an oil done on board.
The funny thing is though that I originally purchased another painting which I can't share with you now as it is for China as part of her 18th celebrations in August. Then I saw this Natural Beauty and kept going away and coming back to her, and hey, she had to be mine. She makes me smile everytime I look at her, and that is about a hundred times a day! so I am a truly happy bunny!
The OWOH event continues at a pace...it has passed last years 911 participants and currently stands at 935.
I am making a second giveaway at the moment as I have had over 100 comments left on my piece...AMAZING!
Don't forget if you want to have a chance to win leave a comment on the OWOH post which will stay at the top of my blog until the end of the Event xxx
Thanks for dropping by... xxxx

I like your drawings including the Susi Blu girl. I haven't tried paint sticks and should sign up with her to get some ideas of how to use them. Also like the painting Natural Beauty. I can see why you liked it. It looks soft like a pastel painting but it's oil! Another medium I haven't pursued.
