Since summer here in Phil is going to end soon, I would like to share with you a work of mine done, if  I am not mistaken, 10 years ago.  Applying  the color palette of summer using oil pastel on sand paper.  And then for final touch, I used Grumbacher Final Fixative for Pastel, Charcoal and Pencil.  It’s gloss finish  makes the flowers look embossed from the paper which add awesome effects on my piece.  And one more good thing, it is non-yellowing.  Thank you for visiting 🙂

There was this typical photo album that my mother bought when we were young.  And since I am the only one who likes to organize our family photos,  I took care all of it and make sure it is preserved and safe .  But  of course there are times that I cannot helped  if some pictures got lost because when the kids at our house checking the old pics and carelessly leave it somewhere…guess what’s next he he he.

     Anyway, I am not really into flowers as my usual subject  but, I admit that my talent become known when I made a simple sketch of a red rose as my homework when I was in Grade 2.  After that day, I become the  first and only female artist who represents our school whenever there’s Art competitions. Ok Back, to the Photo album I was talking about, its cover is so beautiful and I can’t help myself  to make a replica of it.  And I did.  I used oil pastel on paper , 13 years ago.

     It was  Saturday then,  a sunny afternoon…and nothing for me do.  Instead of taking a nap,  I decided to give it a try my Derwent Watercolor Pencils. A first time for me to use these.  But I seem to enjoy playing with it,  never thought it was  easy to use.  It is soft and creamy and not easy to break.  The colors are rich and vibrant especially when you directly use it on dump paper. But unfortunately my colors are limited. I only have 12.  Now I am tempted to buy other color variants of these watercolor pencils.  Hope you like these flowers.  I will try to use this water color pencils for more serious artwork and I promise to share it with you the next time.  Have a nice day 🙂
