I have so many things I should be getting done but I decided to spend the evening with the pastels instead. So much for will power.....

Well done Randy. I really like your light touch that allows some of the ground to show through the pigment. Bob

I think you did the right thing by spending the evening doing this painting. It turned out really lovely.

I so much like the style - bold, sculptural! Beautiful greens!

Rebecca,
In your photo of the Schminke palette, I keep seeing the paint wells as being raised areas, instead of indents, lol.

I have that same one (like it very much, except for the rattling when I walk, fixed by stuffing wads of tack in the crevices...). So I KNOW the wells are indented areas for mixing...but the lighting in your photo is making me see them as raised...I stare at it, and get them to indent...blink, and they pop back out again...haha, fun!

Very interesting idea, Marek!
But I put paint right into the wells...its not too much trouble to soften and move the paint if I want...gads, I've done that plenty of times now with other palettes.
I put DS Shadow Violet into that half pan slot. Seemed a useful extra...
But I might move just my greens into Lego pans...I can never decide which I want! The rest of my colours are permanents, so no need for a pan...

That is just awesome. I hope to be able to paint that loose and decisively one day.
