Between laundry, dishes and other chores, I attempted and threw out 3 pieces of artwork today. One was an oil pastel, one was an acrylic on board and another was a watercolor. Pretty discouraged. Then I pulled out my sketchbook and found an oil pastel that I had done of a Canadian goose landing in a pond. The sketch was pretty good, so I thought that I would attempt to make a preliminary painting to use as a “cut out” for a larger picture. I used one of my favorite tools, Inktense pencils with buff titanium acrylic to blend in some of his feather. That worked very nicely. Take a peak and let me know what you think.

Hope that you had a FABULOUS weekend!
