Just playing around today with a loose free approach. Kind of fantasy image.

Soft pastels, peach paper, 16 by 20 ins.

Hi June, thank you for sharing while looking at your pastel it reminded me of an illustration. By the way I like it very much. :)

What fun! Reminds me a bit of Chagall. :D

Interesting comments. Thanks all very much for viewing and feedback.

I think the 'artist' in my subconscious is actually a child of about 7years maybe!!

Funnily enough, the cat in the middle reminded me of the painting of the colourful cat in 'Paris through the window' by Chagall. A painting I like.

I am happy to go on and try to do something with this fantasy type of approach. It makes a nice rest from trying to do it 'right', i.e., representational. Its like holiday painting!!

June, I enjoyed looking at all of your fantasy creatures. They are very appealing, and so are the colors you used. Please share more of these!

Almost an Alice in Wonderland quality about this! The colors just glow! Definitely looks free and easy and FUN! Way to go!
