Color Red and Something Blue Pastel Sketch

I hope that playing in the pastels and sketching will make me get up and paint.  Who knows?

The sketch is on a recycled piece of Colourfix paper so a muddy background.  It is just a sketch so not wasting precious pastels on the back.  You can see a couple of blobs on the left center.  Maybe a nose of the owl or legs of the red pepper a few sketches back.  There have been at least six sketches on that paper and maybe more.  I used whatever pastels were in the tray of my easel plus a black as I recall.  This took about thirty minutes including wipe off time.  I didn't wet it as I might have because I didn't want to wait to start.  You know, when in the mood.......

Number 3, Color Red
Number 4, Something blue

You recall me talking about not painting, maybe that is all I talk about.  Anyway, I said I might be retiring by default.  I get a copy of the e-mail that is sent when I post a blog.  It has many ads on it and is not great to look at, but at least you get notified if you sign up to get my posts by e-mail.  This one made me smile with the ad it had ... maybe I am being told something!

For those of you that have signed up for these e-mails I apologize for all the ads!  This may be one of the better ones.  Rolling my eyes!

The sketch is nice. I like the blue and red and the muddy background. It is good to keep sketching. Don't retire.

I don't get the email. I use my blogger dashboard which shows who has posted lately.

Bag Blog, Thank you. Lazy me to keep using the same paper, but they are only sketches after all. You are fortunate to use a blog reader, saves so much. I use NetNewsWire, have been for years. The blogger dasboard is good, I use both. :)

I like your red and blue items! I think that is great that you can reuse the paper so easily for the sketches.
