Re: A study of different touches on paper with my pastels



I do not know if it's good the pastel landscape I drew from my imagination but my nephews appreciated as the perfect backdrop for their trains to make their own stories in there.

So, Thomas, Rosie, Fearless Freddie, Mac&Mighty, Annie, Clarabel, Captain, Percy and James have to cross their own woods and creek and make their mischief.

Evie, I like your landscape very much, I can't paint at all from my
imagination I have to use a photo for reference or have something in front
of me. It's a lovely idea to let your nephews and nieces use the painting from your imagination to stimulate theirs!

Thank you Julie!
I think it is more difficult to paint from a photograph. I understand it because I try to make a portrait of my niece from her photo.

It also think it is hard to draw from your imagination. I really like it. Especially the water. I have thoughts of being in boat going up the river and it does look nice hanging on your wall. Rembrandts are one of my favorites. I would love to work more from my imagination. It shows your mind is very open

Nice painting Evie and I envy your ability to paint from you imagination. I think I lost mine somewhere around the age of twelve years old!

I like your imaginative trees. I can see why the train drivers enjoy it as a starting point in their imaginative play!

Re: A study of different touches on paper with my pastels

Hello Carmel!

I liked very much your red pears and what you say about the problem we have with sanded papers:

I may play around with it again next weekend when the skin has returned to my fingers


Well, I had not this problem with canson paper and remprands on it although I could not play with many layers of color; besides who need them when painting from the imagination.

Hello Dale! Thank you! I think imagination is like a bike you never lose the ability It has to do with our occupation. Sometimes we pressure this ability to extend or landing it in the prosaic reality.

Hi Jen!
Thanks for liking my trees I had fun drawing them.

Re: A study of different touches on paper with my pastels

Evie, Hi. This is quite nice. I find my imagination doesn't work very much any more either. I find i just can't get what I want it to look like with out seeing what I'm looking at. My mind only let''s me paint about 1/4 of what comes from the brain to what I see.

Thank you PETE!
Your work is magnificent. I like the choice of color palette you choose to use in in each piece.

When I paint, and not use a picture it frees me to more abstract and creative. I like your work.

Hi Blondgirl!
I think you're right also this way of painting probably will give your a unique style.
