I have been working again in my large journal.
Once again I used oil pastel and this is how she started out.
She is larger than I usually work as her face covers most of this A4 page.
When working larger I tend to struggle getting the eyes to look the way I want them to.
After more work on he eyes and face this is how she is looking at the moment.
I think some more tweaking may be required.
I want to take this opportunity to send out a big
to all who have left  comments recently.
I love to hear your thoughts and I really do appreciate you taking the time to stop by.

Paint Party Friday

This week I'm joining in again with Paint Party Friday.
I am still in the process of sorting out my art room so I am still working in oil pastels,
and coloured pencils
This week I have another piece in oil pastel
Hope you like her.

Linking this to Paint Party Friday.

I found a page in my Journal that I had prepped with gesso.
The brush marks made for an interesting surface for my oil pastels.
I'm joining in WOYWW. Why not pop over and check out what's on other peoples desks this week.

I have been missing from here longer than usual but have been a bit under the weather.
Coughs and colds seem to be doing the rounds and lasting longer than usual.
Roll on Spring time, that's what I say.
This weekend, though, I managed to do a little artwork.
I took a background that I did  a while ago.......
.....and added a figure using my oil pastels.
Hope you like her.
