This is the Greenman that I made last week and I haven't made anymore plaster pieces,lately. I am running out of space!
This YULE /MIDWINTER plaque went into the store: You can buy it HERE
I bought myself a set of Pan Pastels a while ago and got a chance to use them yesterday. I had sketched my portrait and used the pastels with the little applicator provided. I REALLY don't like them for this kind of work. I am not saying that they are not good and I probably need practice but I much prefer using traditional, soft pastel sticks for the way that I work i.e using my finger to blend and control where I want the colour to go. I don't like the way that these blend as they give a soft effect as with a pastel stick you can achieve hard edged lines and control the strokes.
I tried to dip my finger in the coloured pastel pan and I didn't seem to get much on my finger. I accidently dropped a tub up side down on my white flannel sheets ( I was working in bed) and the colour is difficult to remove! The pigmentation is good but don't work in bed ;)
Anyhoo, I painted over the pastels and this is was I am working on. It's not finished but I'll do that much later. My painting is a little rusty as is my blogging!
I've put my plaster works in my store. I don't have room to keep them all and to be honest, the extra cash allows me to buy more materials plus just about covers the costs of online classes . I'd just like to thank my Facebook and NON Facebook friends for supporting me ♥ I hope to return the favour.
