I was feeling like I was repeating myself a bit lately. So, I decided to mix things up a little. I have been admiring a number of artists who were mixing their acrylics with pastels in some shows I’ve seen here in Ct. I have fond memories of using pastels in school but it’s been quite a few years since I’ve touched them. I finally took the plunge when I saw these lovely bright handmade colors in the art store the other day. And then to top it off, I got brave and bought a few sheets of that bumpy lovely handmade watercolor paper. I’m having fun and I’m hoping this experiment will push me a little farther on my journey.
