I’m attempting to make myself feel better about this one by pointing out that it’s a work in progress (WIP). I wanted to do something different from the ink animals I’ve been doing for a while now, so I broke out the Nupastels & decided to try a landscape, another thing I don’t think I ever try.
I’m back after a waaaaaay too long absence! I’ve missed this blog & all of you lovely people out there. My life has been absorbed by music lately, which I think I’ve mentioned before. This is a good thing, but I’m not crazy about the lack of time I’ve spent on drawing this past year.
This is another attempt at using my Nupastels, and I also really need to work on drawing people & portraits. And this is of course incomplete, although I’m not sure if I’ll go back & finish it.
Hello & welcome to some of my very first attempts at drawing with pastels! Isn’t acquiring new art supplies both exciting, invigorating, & intimidating all at the same time? Yes, I think so!
I’ve been having a lot of fun with my Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks, but also recently got a few other things: a small set of Prismacolor Nupastels (they are so beautiful when they’re brand new), Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils, and Prismacolor Markers (I’m sensing a theme here). I’ve hardly touched the markers & haven’t opened the pencils yet, but cracked open the pastels the other day. Apparently these are harder than your traditional pastels – I’ve only used the waxy & chalky variety of pastels a few times, but I do notice a difference.
