I'm just dropping in a few pictures of what I'm working on lately at the doorstep.
The following are a couple of snippets of Christmas presents currently in progress. It's okay to post, because the two recipients aren't likely to check my blog. These are still in the experimental stage, so I'll post finished projects when they're complete.
Last weekend I took my first pastels class. Below you'll find the completed project. It's, what I believe to be, an English robin. It's a rather large piece.... took three hours of class time, then I worked on it for a couple of hours at home. I really, really like working with the pastels... lots of blending and layering. Quite relaxing, actually!
Next month we'll be working on an owl, one of my very favorite birds! We hear them, and when we're lucky, see them roosted in the trees around out house. Hope you're enjoying a beautiful fall day!
