This week's sketches


Sometimes you are happy and sometimes you aren't - some times the experiment is ok and other time should have left it alone.  Both are graphite drawings, sprayed with workable fixative and then color pencil over it, with a little ink accent on the wheel hub.   Have to give my kudos to both Renate and Rita who do the flowers.  Did a bit of the hydrangea from life and boy is it a little bugger.  But that is the purpose of my commitment for a drawing a week.  Now it's Sunday, got last week's done, and got to start another - looking for the subject now and got to start later today as I know the week will fly by.  Mulling over the next project, got to get it started and then hope it will kick into gear.
Appreciate your stopping by and have a great painting week.

    1. Hi Hilda, yes am going to keep after trying them. Hoping to start this week's sketch, just want to try different combinations. Seems that pencils and pastel go together and can use solvent on both for base and then pencil on top where pastel is imbedded, just to try it.
