Well my trip to Hobby Lobby paid off. I got so many neat things yesterday. One of them being a set of pastels, which produced the above image. Few things about pastels, I love them! They are a little messy and it's a little awkward at first but I had a lot of fun playing with them. I have a book from the library and decided to go for one of the larger images, you know, the whole learning to walk before I can crawl. I realize now that I should have done the little exercises first but I still enjoyed working on this. I also realized that I need larger paper for an image like this. It was hard getting the detail in a small space. But that brings me to one of my other finds, pastel papers in an assortment of colors. I also got a set of Watercolors in the tubes, a super neat spiral bound watercolor field journal, a book on watercolors, some watercolor card papers and envelopes and a tiny little sketch book. Everything was either on sale or on clearance and the one item that wasn't, the pastels, I used their 40% off coupon for.
Now, if I could just get up the guts to actually use the watercolors we'd be all good!
