Re: Stillman & Birn New Journals

Thank you! Kema, I can understand choosing the warm sunny room door or no door. I'm just glad that here I've got so much space and light. It's bigger than my Arkansas room was and I also have more space because the bed's smaller. The bed's even on casters if I want to rearrange it.

I love it here. Still working on getting lined up with everything in social services, transportation is the next leap. Other than that, everything's going great!

And I'm getting into pastels again...


Poppy Field Landscape
5" x 4 1/2"
12 color Conte color hard pastels
Stilman & Birn "Delta" cream sketchbook paper.
Inspired by Colleen Howe "Color Harmony for Luminous Pastels" video demo on artistsnetworktv - I loosely did her demo from memory while she was talking about something else and played with it with color Conte.

Just felt like getting dusty and needed a break, something fun that didn't need to be perfect!

I'm glad things are going well for you Robert and good to see you pasteling again. I love the bright red glow of the poppy field.

Re: Stillman & Birn New Journals

Thank you! I knew I could at least use hard pastels in it and discovered something else. The paper's heavy enough that when I use SpectraFix fixative on it, it won't buckle. I'm getting to love this sketchbook more every time I use it.

Re: Stillman & Birn New Journals

Thank you! I had trouble posting yesterday, but I've done two more sketches in the Delta journal:


Blue-Green Glass
5.5" x 8"
Carb-Othello pastel pencils on Stillman & Birn "Delta" journal
Photo reference by She-She from Sept. 2011 Pastel Spotlight

That's today's. Yesterday I did the Dancer from the same challenge:


Dancer
Same size, Conte crayon Portrait set of 12 in Delta journal.

Re: Stillman & Birn New Journals

Thank you! Yeah, everyone lost about a half day's worth of posts when the site went down. I guess they backed up from a previous save in order to get past the trouble.

Today's sketches, two pages of them, still in the Delta!


Sketches in Dark Derwent Sketching Pencil on S&B Delta Journal
