#100dayproject — Day 62

I’m in love with soft pastels. Enough so, I ordered more colors! They’re crumbly, hard to draw a straight line with, easily smudgeable—what’s not to love? 🙂 I think what makes me happy is their texture and the vibrant colors. I’ve worked with watercolor so long (okay, not really that long) that I’m accustomed to seeing lighter colors, so the pastels really pop. I have an art book coming in the mail, dedicated to soft pastels. I hope to get better.

(Index Card a Day 2020)

I used robin’s egg blue as a background, penned in a grid on the card, and then started collaging the face of the index card with scraps of papers I’ve painted. I rather like the result.
