Peace, Love and Palmettos

Peace, Love and Palmettos

Fooling around with oil pastels. I think it’s a lot easier to draw with charcoal, but I like the way you can blend a bunch of colors with oil pastels. Here’s a little sketch I did a few days ago of my favorite reading corner in my backyard. I found out by pure coincidence towards the end of my drawing that if you heat up the pastels you can blend them so much better…they were melting in the summer afternoon heat! On my next sketch I’ll plan on heating them up from the start. Also, in Atlanta I was thinking about taking some painting classes. Maybe the classes will help me keep my creative juices flowing for copywriting.

    What a pretty drawing. You should hang that on our refrigerator.
