Paula- hope you don't mind me starting this....I have been waiting for it to appear and need to take a shower :lol:

This was a 5 minute sketch- I have been using quick pastel sketches to base paintings on- to see how the colors work etc. Below is the gouache and fluid acrylic painting. Hope you don't mind the total sloppyness- but remember that sometimes getting an idea down on paper quickly is more important than having something finished, polished and totally beautiful.

These are 9 X 12 (ampersand paper, Great American pastels)

Thanks for starting this Linda. I'm always anxious to get these threads subscribed on Mondays before I forget.
