PPF Top Hat, Pastel, Acrylic

Hi Everyone!

Happy Paint Party Friday. I feel like I got some art done this week. First off watercolor class is over and we have started pastels. Sighhhhh... I am so glad. I am just not good with WC. I have not worked much in pastels but so far I LIKE IT!!! I can see the potential with this medium. Here is my first piece. He needs a name, so leave one with your comment.

 please click on photos see details.

 This was a warm up piece.We had certain color we had to use.

I am also working on this painting that is acrylic, ink, and pastels. Please click on it to see all the faces in the background. This should be finished by the weekend.

On Saturday the library is having an appreciation Tea for all the volunteers at the library. I had mentioned to a few ladies that we should dress up and make mini top hats. Here is mine. The doll is Lucy, I made her about 25 or 30 years ago. She makes the best model. LOL

I am linking with Paint Party Friday and a big thanks to Eva and Kristen

Have a great weekend everyone!

Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  9. A library tea party is a great occasion for dressing up and little hats are perfect for that. Your pastel work is looking great. I urge you not to give up on watercolour, it’s a crazy world but a fun one too :)

    Happy PPF!

  10. The faces are coming along! Your hat is darling! I hope you had fun at the tea!

  11. hopefully a lot of people wear tophats :)

  12. You're doing really well with the pastels, I particularly like the first face.

  13. I love the top hat! I sympathise about watercolours...I really love them but I find them annoyingly difficult to do! They should be easy but for me, not!

  14. hi, glad you like the pastels, the faces look great. :) Sorry, but I have no name for him. :(
    Love your hat :)

  15. Wow! I cannot do anything with acrylics. These are lovely. Forlorn Courage?
