Thanks bunch...I am sure writing the article so that it is so concise and understandable had its own challenges too. :clap: :clap:

Wow, what a great article! This will surely benefit many folks out there - a very challenging subject to tackle in any medium!

BTW, you should edit your bio, so the last page appears properly. :D You can do that in the publisher tool ... should be a link there for editing your writer's bio.

Wow! ummm- thank you- I'm glad you enjoyed reading through my process, and hope it helps you if you want to include clear glass in a future piece. Water works about the same way- as do flowers, metal- well, pretty much anything. Alla same, numba 1.

an' I did the bio thing, Scott- but only 'cause you said to- thought I could get away with leaving it blank, maybe, but noooooooo....

Beautiful and very informative. Can't wait to try pastels again. Haven't used them in years - between ex not liking my color combos etc, and having a child - - but now he is older and wants to learn - and your piece will help me teach him. Thank you! Linda
