I got out my pastel pencils and conte pencils this wknd and drew some portraits
I see others had the same idea for dapper dave
this is 4x6 quickie (half hour) of elegant dave in conte
(hmm, looks like attachments will have to do
I used pastel pencils on dad (1 hr) and the lad (1/2 hr), both on colored cardstock, 4x6
I tried out HP paper (8x10) for the bouquet,(1 hr) and still don't like HP, so did it again, just painting witha web brush on a WC card (4x6) (1/2 hr) and like it better,

Bonnie, Dave is fantastic- definite likenesses in family portraits and love the first floral bouquet- these colors appeal more to me!

Lovely work. Dave looks elegant in his bowtie. Toddler very nicely done, as are the flowers. Very fresh. And I love the portrait of dad, my fave here. ... Because he is looking right at us with a friendly face.

These are all wonderful Bonnie... one quick question, HP paper?

02-01-2011, 01:00 PM
Wow Bonnie you ahve had quite a sesssion!
Dave looks so sophistiCATed!

I like the 2 different takes on the bouquet and Dad looks younger - he'd definately approve.
Andy deinatley has a reluctant expression.

What a lovely collection of work! It's nice to see you working with something different too and nice to see your pastel work :)

The cat looks great. The 1st bouquet is lovely for its depth of color and comp.

Bonnie....guess no one really reads the comments unless it's in their own thread or they'd all know that HP is indeed HOTPRESS...LOL

Wow! Busy girl! Kitty with bowtie looks so handsome. Dad and reluctant gardener are both well done. The bouquets (both) are stunning :) :) :)

well done on all these Bonnie, lovely portraits, especially 'dad'. The first bouquet is super, great work on the vase and the shadow too...
