This week I am using Soft Pastels

I love the way they work and how they feel.  I rub Q-tips over them after rubbing them on the paper. I used them on watercolor paper. And I used the prismacolor pencils. Sunset, palm tree on the beach and the ocean.

I then made an ACEO with prismacolor pencils.  She is a witch(lette) in training. Can't quite make the broom fly right side up.  Teens and young adults love to play with color in their hair.

Have some fun with the other artists on Paint Party Friday. It is fun and a total learning experience.

Still Experimenting


I did not like the way it turned out.  I used too much water and the clouds became sort of puffy. .  which I proceeded to make puffy.  It needed something else, so I actually added sand (the kind you buy in a craft store).
I couldn't get the sunrise (over the water) so I changed the picture entirely, or should I say, I ruined the picture entirely.

Only way to learn, is just to keeping going (oops) mountains with trees and birds on the siade and a setting sun. . . .
Both paintings I tried to correct something. . . .and am going to keep painting until I understand it and get it right.

Please join the Paint Party Friday group and see what we all are accomplishing.

I've been trying something new.  I love the reflections in the water that I see as I walk.
I am trying to capture them. Truly difficult.
I had watched a couple of videos. The white acrylic is what I used to simulate the water.

Pictures (Photographs) below of each pic above.

Be sure to visit the other Paint Party Friday artists.

Kit and Kat

Sitting on the Bench

I used Prismacolor pencils.
I just wanted to do something fun . . . use your imagination. I make a lot of witch dolls and ACEO cards with little wannaBee witches.  Paint Party Friday is a fun place to be.
