Playing in the Pastels - Day 2, Pastel Painting, Hunting

I decided to continue my practice this morning.  I spent about 45 minutes on this, so maybe it is a sketch instead of a painting.  I had a series of fruits and vegetables going a few years ago.  I will add this to the bunch.

Bunches Of ...
10 x 8 inches
Pastel on Canson paper

I will post it on Scavenger Hunt 399  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1375890
Number 1, something from the fridge

That works for me.

Ralph Serpe started Creative Spotlight http://www.creativespotlite.com/ He invited me to post there a long time ago.  That site has grown and grown and so they added Art Instruction Blog  http://www.artinstructionblog.com/  where  has a slew of free videos and "how to" posts.  Many varieties of media and artists.   I did one waaaaaay back in about 2006.  It is still there if you care to see it.  I haven't changed my technique very much since then.

Radishes are my favorite "good for you" snack. You did well with your painting.

Bag Blog, thank you. I was going to cut them for our snacking!

I've never particularly liked radishes. But, the painting is a-okay! :-)

I love the link to the old instructional post. It's almost 10 years old! Very cool.

Hi, Joanna! I really like radishes but don't buy them very often. I like their color in a salad. We have been snacking on them.
I saw a new video on the Art Instruction site so went to see if mine was still there and voilà as they say. :) Thanks.
