That’s it! I’ve decided to really go outside my painting size comfort zone.
Now “big” to me is A3 as I am usually an 8×10 inch kind of girl. Also I can’t go bigger than A3 as my scanner won’t take it and I want to be able to scan my artwork and make cards and possible prints in the future.
The reason – this absolutely gorgeous Indian Hare.
I purchased her image from a royalty free site along with 4 others yesterday – blowing £30 but so worth it don’t you think?
I printed her this morning – she slurped up a tonne of ink but I don’t care! I want to see large details…
Lately I have been painting a few hares for a client and so I am in hare “groove”.
The thing is – now I have her printed and ready to go and feel I want to do her in pastel and not watercolour I have realised that I am short of yellow pastels….Oh dear – well – any excuse to go and buy a nice new set of the fabulous Unison soft pastels to complement my stash so far:)
Unison are the best pastels if you ask me – the way they handle, the shape of them and their colour richness is amazing.
I will be painting this hare on Art Spectrum Colourfix Pastel Paper in sand – a divine and fine yet gritty surface that accepts soft pastel like a dream.
Now I just have to get myself all set up as I had put all my pastels away after having a painting day with 3 lovely ladies this week.
Watch this space:)
