Not done of course - maybe an hour into it. I started the drawing in pastel. This is a new panel I ordered a dozen of. 8X10" midtone seafoam green - a bit coarser weave than the ones I was using before. As soon as I started enjoying the pastels, I started sneezing and wheezing and switched to acrylics. Not quite warm enough to open the windows here yet.
Sorry about the flash! I am leaving for Maine in the AM so probably won't be back for a bit.:wave:

This is already looking good - colour choices super!:)

Enjoy your trip away.:)

I'm OK with pastels but the pollens have started early here and sneezing so much is a nuisance!:lol:
