I have a hard time letting go of posting & getting on with restoring. I already know how to reduce the pixels which I have just done now with these two photos and feel I have climbed a step on the ladder of the blog-world 😉

I wanted to share with you this photo that seemed comical at the time. Imagine waking up one morning to see (I’m speaking of fantasy but this one is real!) a castle in your backyard! I wondered how the people living next to it felt with that as a view. Can you picture it?

In my beginnings, I wanted to experiment every way of drawing, painting, techniques tools and materials. ( I was very curious and adventurous ) There is such an array , I don’t think I’ll ever get through the collection , but that is the reason for the heterogeneity of my paintings and drawings and the different approaches and expressions in my art.
This was drawn in Pastel crayons.
I love its consistency, and the effect it has as a whole.
But I somehow ended up working recently exclusively with acrylic.
My next ” dare ” is to venture into the ” hazards ” of oil painting. I know it is far less simple than acrylic, the fumes, the cleaning up after with white spirit which is so toxic… If you have any suggestions about how to use oil paint in a ecological way, I’m open to new ideas.
Let me know what you think about Pastel.
Have a good day!
