I've always wanted to try out drawing with pastels but managed to avoid that for years as I just didn't want to have to clean up the mess that they inevitably create. So hey, I decided to 'cheat' a bit when I discovered some reallly cool digital pastel brushes by Kyle whose watercolour brushes I've recently been experimenting with as well. He has a wonderful collection, check it out here.
I scanned in the drawing that I'd done of the girl with cherries, two dogs and two cats, and had a great time painting it in, on photoshop. As it's springtime and my previous icon or avatar or whatchamacallit was now out of season being that she was wrapped up in hat and scarves, this seemed perfect to replace it, don't you think?
Wishing you a delightful week. Cheers.
