Daisy Pastel on Canson 5x7

'Nantucket Daisies' 5x7 pastel
Today I decided to do some paintings on Canson paper. In class tonight we will be working on being aware of the marks we make and trying to have our marks show rather than have everything blended away. Working on Canson makes this easier because we can't get as many layers as we do on sanded papers....so every stroke has to have a purpose. I was on a roll and did 3 small paintings which I will be sharing this week. I have also discovered another diversion...making flowers from felted wool thrift store sweaters. Fun! I'll share them when I get a few more made.
If you are in the Marietta/Atlanta area and want something fun to do this Friday night, consider the Art Walk at the Marietta Square. There will be an Artist's Alley inside DuPre's Antique Market as well as artists being hosted by businesses on the Square. I will be at the Art Forum at DuPre's painting so please come by and say hello!
