No direction known




Soooo of course I couldn't wait. I thought about cropping but then I remembered my brand new oil pastels,a christmas present from my husband ,and I thought why not????? So I began to recklessy go forward, no direction known,except to get rid of the muddle on the left. A little pastel here a little watercolor pencil shavings there and well... it's been fun I think I will play with this painting a little more and try again.

New oil pastels, so nice.

I wonder what you do with watercolor pencil shavings?

Ruth, I shave the pencil shavings into wet paint in order to get texture and a deeper color. I have been reading Taking Risks with Watercolors by Trevana. It's a wonderful book filled with great ideas. Oh,when we were talking the other day about studios,yes I do have a space/studio of my own. David encouraged me to convert our sons bedroom into my art room. I love it. I don't have to worry about cleaning up projects before they are complete and it's really given me a place of my own. Do you have a space for writing and photography?

(I'm afraid I don't understand the question about unflagging on my blog, Cathy! If you want to email me more details, I'll try to answer!)

This is an absolutely beautiful painting you've created. I always admire those artists (that'll be you!) who have a way with colour.

Happy New Year!!
