New Challenge

Soft pastel, A3

I have not open my pastel box for a while. But when I saw the September image in Studio Atelier  (link) of Barb Benik, I realized the time did come.

I did not draw or paint for almost a ten days period. Lot of work which completely switched my mind off the creativity mode. I even did not want to start again, to take pen or brush. But the poison is already deep inside, I can not stop painting and drawing. I am back).

James Gourney is a talented painter and illustrator and dedicated blogger. Today he posted the link to the place where you could download free copies of Andrew Loomis excellent books-manuals about the art of painting, drawing, illustrating. Don't miss them!
