The sketch I did this week emulates the plein air style of this artist (http://donald-maier.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/all?page=3) who uses pastel pencils (or maybe sticks) on a medium-value ground, in kind of a striped pattern. This is a way to get the information down quickly, and he does it very well.
This is in my 7x10 brown-paper sketchbook. next time I'll try it on Mei-Tintes or something with texture. Wonky roof alert!

Last week all I managed to do was a quickie Scribbler Too crab.

And sometime in May, while I was in Zurich, I started one, using the new Caran D'Ache pastel pencils I had just bought at their flagship store. They are the best pastel pencils ever.about 3x4 on dark grey LaCarte.

Delightful! Of course, my favorite is the crab. What an excellent scribbler work. I love the cottage too.

Rainy day cottage/winery looks good for a rainy day:) Like the pastel flowers best. Crab is interesting.

Love 'em all, Wendy! The ramped-up value contrasts on the colorful crab makes him an attention getter.
