Sunday Sketches

Hello and Happy Sunday! I'm a little late posting today, because we went to church then to see a movie. I played in my journal yesterday and used some pan pastels that I bought last year but only used 1 other time.

I also used them on this canvas which still needs to be finished:

I really liked the pan pastels...they go on dry and really make a creamy background. You just have to remember to spray them with a fixative when you're finished.
I'm off to see what everyone else submitted for Sunday Sketches! I hope you'll join us!

The textures you have been creating are wonderful! (And I love the way the lines of the flower and bird cage look set against them!)

Very nice Sunday Sketches. I love the Pan Pastels too! They are so rich and creamy, but dry - lol, if that makes sense.

Nice work, Debbie. I have pastels but have only messed around with them once. Too messy for me. LOL Oh well. You did a fine job with your pieces. :)
