Hunting Sketch and Pastel Indian Blanket
I have not been too faithful to the Scavenger Hunts. I did a quick one last night for Hunt 179 as it was interesting. We were to do a self portrait in cartoon style. I did a two minute sketch in pencil. I have never been one to copy cartoons or try to draw one so here is my goofy effort. :)
I am working on a pastel painting of a porch with flower pots. I also started another wildflower the other day and decided to work on it as well. It is difficult for me to do pastel flowers. I find it hard to make them look light and airy. This one is better after I worked on it a bit so now I am satisfied with it. We didn't have sun today so the photo is not the final one.
These are Indian Blankets, their color is more red than orange and the blue is brighter, so hopefully a new photo will be more like the painting.
