In planning for my next senior citizen class, I found some Pentel Arts Fabric Pastel Dye Sticks. We are going to be painting on white t-shirts for our first public event.

Using them on fabric was pretty easy, but when I tried them with white charcoal pencil and black Strathmore 400 series artist tiles, they excelled!


I am going to try more black paper experimentation with these.  I may switch my line and wash to white charcoal line with pastel sticks wash.  They are wax based and you iron them to make them permanent.

I think I have found my "thing."

aloha

mea (so excited about the possibilities with this)

Not sure who the two ladies are, but they are enjoying a glass of wine while they watch the sunset.

I sketched this while I was on Cape Cod in July and forgot all about it.  Just found it in my sketch book so put some finishing touches on it.

Makes me want to go back and finish the wine.


It's line and wash, but not sure if I used colored pencils, pastels, or watercolor.  May be a combination of all three by the time it was finished.  Looks like I used Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I like that for line and wash.

Comments and suggestions gratefully accepted.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Good job Mea. The two ladies seem to be deep in conversation while enjoying their wine.  My only concern is the lady on the right looks like she has a bubble coming out of her mouth, caused by the bottom rung of the fence being curved and not straight.

Oh! Mea, I am not normally terribly observant but I was enjoying looking at the painting and thinking about what the ladies would be saying to each other for they seemed so engrossed in conversation.  Anyway, a good job Mea.
