November 13-19,2017

Another week has passed and it’s almost December, wow, where did the year go? This week was even more relaxed and informal for my art practice. I am very much enjoying downtime, yet trying to keep my routine and daily art habit. Let’s take a look:

1. Pastel : 

This week I had both soft pastel (See all on instagram under #greenrainartpastels)and oil pastel practice (see all on instagram under #greenrainartoilpastel)

Two works in soft pastel

challenge for the next week instagram post:

apple pie soft pastel greenrainart

now I want to make an apple pie!

and another memory from our Oregon trip

hug point sunset soft pastel greenrainart

I was thinking of my box of oil pastels and how little I’m using them. They are so different from soft pastel and require different set of skills. I haven’t been very lucky with them and kept putting them aside. I decided it’s high time I explored oil pastels again (plus I refuse to be defeated by art supplies)

I drew a fox

I had so much fun drawing this little guy

and a peacock

all the blues!

I had fun drawing both, I will definitely continue

2. A dried flower for Sketchflashmob (see #greenrainartfromlife  for more), only one more prompt next week, and we say goodbye 😦

3. I drew a pheasant in markers as a part of brainstorming for one more contest

another brainstorming exercise was a mushroom study

4. I tried to maintain a daily habit of drawing with a series of 1-5 minute sketches, also to keep drawing from life

That is all for this week. Let’s see what happens next week when I will hopefully have a bit more time to myself.

Happy Thanksgiving to those that celebrate and have a lovely week, everyone!
