Pan Pastels

I've been watching a lot of Donna Downey's videos, and was intrigued with the idea of Pan Pastels.  Of course, Donna's look so wonderful!  So, not knowing exactly what to order, I discovered that she offers two sets of pan pastels (I ordered mine from Blick Art Supplies) , and they each include a different video lesson!  Yay! 

This is my first attempt, and I can see a lot more practice in the future!  This was made using crumpled paper applied to the canvas, and modeling paste for the flowers.  I don't think that I've mastered the ability to enrich the scene with layers of colors like she does.  But, I did enjoy the process!

Oh you will get the hang of this and be producing some very happy art. I love that you use such color.. You know I was always wimpy at that. .. but getting a bit braver. BJ
