Remembering Georgia

Remembering Georgia is a colored pencil and oil pastels drawing. I enjoy combining the colored pencils with the oil pastels. Prismacolor pencils are an oil based pencil and can be used with a little turpentine and of course oil pastels can also be thinned with turp. I take a small jar and put in some cotton balls and a little turp then when you dip your Prismacolor pencil into the jar you get a smooth and bright color. If you have any questions about this process just leave a comment and I will answer your questions.

Diana's Shells

Three things that I like to draw or paint, Sunflowers, shells, and fish. It has been a lovely day. A very good friend came over to paint. We seemed to get a lot done. I am also feeling lots better. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. A wonderful happy day for our family.

Paperwhites and Tapestry

I love both paperwhites and I love this tapestry. This is a large Prismacolor pencil drawing. It is really funny I used to draw very large drawings and loved doing them but had to stop as my wrist was bothering me so much. I worked hard with stretching and exercises for my wrist, arms and shoulders. I work very hard with yoga stretching. It is very important that you as an artist learn to take care of your body. I think Yoga is the way to go. I have this wonderful yoga teacher now and she has helped me so much. Love to you all. Jeanne
