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.
