Washing Days. Acrylic Watercolour.

I did this one out of an art book, its done in acrylic and watercolours. Thought I'd see how they went together. Did it on heavy duty acid free 300 gms paper, didn't have any canvas then, but it turned out all right on the paper any way. I ordered some small canvas panels about a month ago of an ebay seller, so far am still waiting on them, oh I hope they come through soon. There 5x7" and have a couple of small ones I want to do on them. They keep telling me there re-sending them but still haven't seen hair or hide of them yet. Fingers crossed will be soon.

I haven't finished any new paintings yet, so thought I'd pop a couple of pastels on I did awhile ago. I did these on sanded paper, its holding power is wonderful. When I first started using it I ended up with no fingerprints, haha, I didn't realise when blending just how much skin it took off. Wow did I fond out the next morning. Also found out you don't blend pastel much with your fingers, but with other pastels.

Blogging again.

I haven't blogged for awhile, I was sick for awhile and didn't get much of anything done including any art. I have started a new painting and hope to have this one up within the next day or so. In the break have got to look at some other really lovely blogs, and some stunning artworks. So here's hoping to finish the one I'm doing soon.
