Pastels

Saturday, April 21, 2012






Pastels are something wonderful. Colorful to the extreme. Such a wonderful art tool, and so easy to hide your mistakes, by simply adding or rubbing away a layer. I love it - the chalk dust staining your fingers as it does the page, the crumbling into a beautiful mess as you work...:)

Do you use pastels?

p.s. - I got a comment the other day from an anonymous commenter saying that my watermark is "extremely distracting and annoying" I didn't think that was the case, but just wanted to check with y'all to be sure. If it is, I may be able to find a way to make it less distracting, without making it easy to crop out. :)

  1. Oooh, I love pastels! They're definitely one of my favorite things to work with when it comes to art. :)

    I don't think the watermark is distracting, but perhaps you just fade it a bit or put it in the corner of a photo. :) It's all up to you, though, and I don't mind if you keep it the way it is. You take beautiful pictures, by the way! :)

  2. love the colors. :)

    I think the watermark's fine...but it might be a little less noticeable if you put it in gray or something. I don't know. It doesn't bother me at all. :D

  4. By the way I was reading through Olivia's vlog from a few weeks ago and stumbled upon you comment with the list of things in Shariah Law. I congratulate you that you stated that and I 100% agree with the list even if Olivia didn't. Since I liked your comments so much I now follow your blog.

    1. Jeremiah,
      Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me - as you probably know, it's not easy to state your opinion when everyone around disagrees. :) I'm really honored that you followed my blog just because of one comment.

      God bless you,

  6. DUDE. L-O-V-E pastels! Not only awesome for drawing, but also awesome for hair-chalking! Gotta admit, I haven't tried it yet, but as soon as I get my hands on some good quality ones my head's gonna be a rainbow ;)
