Rough pieces- Flowers

Postby Soltarianknight » Wed Oct 17, 2012 7:04 pm

Yes yes, flowers, how original of me XP. Im just getting used to the Pastel world and thought i might ask how i'm coming along. These three pieces are just roughly done bits that i threw together in school.

(not a huge fan on the stems on this one for obvious reasons)

I tried to get used to using blending sticks but in the end i like using my fingers much more. I was looking for a good fixer that i could use, unfortunately i only have a Michael's locally so im limited on supply and expertise.

Now, Soltarian, don't be down on your choice of subject!
Flowers are and will always be, something that people love
to look at.
Gotta admit, Pastels are not my forte. To me, they are hard
to blend and manipulate. Having said that, I am enjoying your
colors and the action of picture number two.
Picture # 3 vase is lovely - a masterful attempt at blending and I
even like the scratch lines going down the front !
Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Number 2 is something of a two second catch up in the sense that you see the center of the picture before the red petals kinda draw your attention out. As for scratch marks, not sure what i was actually going for there. I did however do non-flower piece today that i kinda of like.

Blended the crud out of my fingers.
