I tried using Pan Pastels today. I love the softness of them but find edges really difficult. I also found it almost impossible to keep or add the white highlights so I resorted to a white Uniball pen. Hmmm?
Today's poppy - for the Friday Sketch - splash and scribbled. Perhaps more splashed than scribbled but also done with complementary colours only as requested in another class I took this week. I used Twinkling H2Os Ruby Red, Iridescent Red, Pretty Peridot and Green Tea.
My beloved Zoe.
Mixed media, mostly acrylic. She lived to be fourteen and half years old - rescued at six months, she lived a happy but often wary life. An abused animal does not forget, no matter how much loved and cared for! I miss her so much.
I was working from a photo I was given in a recent drawing class - I was supposed to do this in graphite but after trying twice and being unhappy with the result I decided to try it with my skewer and Sumi ink.
