Windy with Chance of Doughnuts
about 6 x6 each :top -pastel and watercolor on marble dust board, bottom- oil on paper
Today is a very windy day. I went out to the reservoir and painted then on the way home I bought a pink doughnut. After seeing the one Susan had painted recently I was inspired to do something completely different.. This one has these BIG jimmies on top. I think they were hearts and snowflakes. My goal was to paint the first painting in pastel and the second in oil with the palette knife. Familiar to unfamiliar. In the process I would hopefully transfer what I learned with pastel to the knife painting.
I am feeling a bit elastic lately as I stretch to work with this knife.
Sincerely your rubber band painter,
PS I will post the reservoir pastel for tomorrow.
PPS I have recovered enough, so I am ready to go back to the outdoors. Boy, have I missed it!!!!!
