Oil pastels are the medium I have the least experience with and also the least amount of supplies*. I often feel more of an affinity to painting that drawing, though, and oil pastels ride a line between the two in an interesting, if messy way.
Yay, watercolor paintings! These mermaid pieces are from October of last year – again trying to catch up on my 2020 art sharing. I’m happy with how flow-y the hair turned out on all three pieces. I felt extremely rusty with using watercolors, and the background of vague seaweed shadows on the first painting was…ugh. Still, even feeling rusty, there are things I can find things I like about the first painting: the light and shadow on the tail and the jewelry pattern.
The full moon was so pretty driving home from Zumba class. While driving back, I wondered: what will I do with my night and how productive will I be after dinner? Honestly, I felt wiped and fired up Netflix after eating; if I could spend my whole night watching The Magicians, I think I would. But I took a break and sketched a little – the water brush is growing on me 🙂
