 :nono:   Here I am just days after announcing I was leaving pastels (for now), I see the topic for today and almost signed up!  :eek:     See how easily I can be sidetracked?!  :2funny:   I gave myself a good talking to, made a cup of tea, had a good cry and got my paints and pencils out. Have fun everybody and I'll see you in drawing class.  O0


 :sweat: Whew, made that one by the skin of my teeth!  :sweat:     

Dennis, you are a hard habit to break! Thank you for being you.

A very interesting class thank you Dennis.  Here is my rendition but it looks a little blurred.  Patricia

Nice work, Patricia.  Looks like there was a stiff breeze whipping up that surf.  It looks like that here today.

I especially like your cloud colours Patricia. I am not at all happy with this one but I've been reminded that my fingers seem to be too big to work on a small pastel! Both sets of rocks have managed to end up in a line across my paper and its hard to keep my whites white (like a laundry ad!) I don't like the pattern of foam in the foreground and I want to do it again. Can you wipe pastels right off and start again?

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Thank you so much JayJ, Penny, Mea and Karen for your lovely comments on my painting of the surf.  There is a lot that I felt I could do better with but at least I tried and I am still such a novice at art but I really enjoyed the lesson immensely.


 :clap: :clap: :clap: Karen, your painting is beautiful and I don't know why you are unhappy with it because I think you did a superb job especially painting a long which is not easy.  Your rocks have definition, your sea is lovely and so are your clouds. I loved the reflections of the rocks on the left hand side.  Yes, it is difficult to keep your whites white and that is why you should have a damp cloth nearby to keep wiping your hands before taking hold of different colours.  I have tried wiping colour off the paper with a piece of kitchen towel, applied white over the area and then went ahead and applied the correct colour on it and it did work.  Anyway, I am sure the more experienced artists will come along and give you advice on that question.


Patricia.

Well done on the paint alongs Patricia and Karen.  Karen I use packing tape.  Place it over what u want to remove and rub then remove tape.  It might take a couple of applications.  Works better than anything else I've tried.
