Re: June Monthly Challenge - Welcome to All!

Christel, you have a beautiful touch with oil pastels. The fawn is excellent. Op are the most difficult medium for me. I’m so much in awe. : )

Christel, your fawn is too cute! I love the sleepy look you've given him - those drooping eyelids are so sweet. Well done!

Re: June Monthly Challenge - Welcome to All!

Kay and I both need to be walking down the cat hall of shame. As cat ladies and with images of cats to choose from, what do we decide to paint? Birds! HA! My kitties are NOT impressed!

Did the yellow bird (finch?) trying a new support, Aquaboard - 5 x 7 watercolor.

CaliAnn, beautiful bird. Your colors are so rich. Did you like the Aquaboard? A friend in the Scavenger Hunts uses it and likes it a lot.

Re: June Monthly Challenge - Welcome to All!

Thanks Jo - yes, I loved it! It suits the way I paint, doesn't buckle and my first attempt at the bird (which did not go well), I washed the paint right off and started again. It is pricey though - but, as I said, if you muck up, just wash off and it's good like new (at least that's how I justified spending money and buying some more!

CaliAnn, your finch is awesome done on the board! How do you like working on it? Not easy for me and I've tried several times.

Re: June Monthly Challenge - Welcome to All!

Thanks Kay. So far I love it! Mind, I'm new at it, the finch is my first go (after I washed off the first attempt). I bought 3 5 x 7 boards from Blick to try. Liked it enough, ordered a few more (which my hubby knows nothing about - HA!)
