Okay you know what it is like you have supplies that you have but have never used - I was like that with my Pan Pastels...I had them in their boxes waiting for the courage to use them. I decided to watch a few videos on the Pan Pastel site; having done so I decided to bite the bullet. I took the Pans out of their boxes and put them in to palette trays - and hey presto ready to go...
Anyway with some trepidation I sketched out a girl, I made her big as this was the first time I had used them and thought that using the sponges etc in small places might prove tricky. This was the end result...
I was so amazed at how much fun I had creating this lady called "Giselle" - Ian likes to name my ladies. That of course I had to play again.
I had a fairy come to mind so I started work on her - I have to confess that there is a lot of rubbing out, amending and so on till I get to the point where I am happy with the sketch, then it is time to start adding the colour.
My fairy turned out like this - she is called "Angelique"
I had the BEST comment from Christy Sobolewski... she wrote
I have always been able to pick out your work from a sea of artists. That is something to be proud of. I'm just glad you are creating more! So good to see that!
Seriously I can't begin to tell you how my heart soared when I read that - it told me that I had my own style, and yes I am so proud of that.
The support I have received is beyond...and I would like to THANK YOU, all of you, who comment when I post to FB - it means the world.
And so I shall share here my newest creation, all Thanks to those delicious Pan Pastels, she is yet to be named as she is not on FB yet, do you want to see her? Here she is...
This piece is called "Penny for your thoughts"
Thanks for dropping by, the next post will be about a GIVEAWAY - I would have done it sooner but I believe some people have not been able to leave a comment, I shall use this post as a tester, if it works again, and I hope it will I will post details next time around, THANKS again
