O Kay, Here I go, I have decided to start to write more on my blog. I hope I can keep it up. I am going to try and start writing more about my work and give some pointers along the way . It is my goal to give some pointers ,ideas and inspiration to some of you wonderful people out there on the www. I hope it will be interesting and informative to others. Just to say a bit about this new piece, this is another mixed media painting. Here again I have used gouache and pastel. The pastels are new, and kind of interesting, because they are water soluble. That means they break down in water. They are fun to try. They are very smooth when you are drawing/painting with them, then you can go over them with a wet brush. This helps to soften edges and blend colors. They come in lots of wonderful colors and you can buy them in sets or individually. They really give you a new way of working and some fresh ideas. I find I need that in all sorts of parts of my life. You know, variety is the spice ..... Try it have fun, a blessed day to you. A
