Pastel on Color-Fix
copyright - Jan Gibson
I think I'm coming out of that awful painting funk I was in finally. Now I'm all hyped up and wanting to paint but have to direct my energies to cleaning and cooking for Christmas!
Not that I mind, really, but it would be nice to be able to paint now that I feel more like it!
Anyway, here's one product of the new-found energy and enthusiasm for painting. This is Annie, a ShiTzu, who was painted in pastel on a blue ColorFix sanded paper. I used my new Pan pastels, some Rembrandt and Jack Richeson sticks and some pastel pencils. The bandana is in the Denver Broncos colors and it was requested that I leave it on since Annie's owner is a huge fan.
This is a digital photo instead of my usual scan but I think it came out fairly true to life. I've ordered a new scanner and hope to get it soon! At least with a digital photo, you don't see all the little grains of sand like a scan would pick up! Maybe I should try to photograph that bunny I did on the hemp and recycled paper! lol
