Pastel ocean work.

 Finished another test piece working with my soft pastels. Doing a lot of experimenting figuring out my flow and techniques. This is Rembrandt sticks and Stabilo CarbOthello pencils done on gesso treated cold pressed watercolor paper. I was quite satisfied with the paper and the grit the gesso provided. It gave me all the layers I needed for the pastel and was much cheaper than the most often mentioned and used pastel papers. I have also had good results with Caston paper treated with gesso.

Painting after fixative. I use a homemade gelatin based fixative. I had some black ink in the under painting that came out a little darker than I planned but I’m still happy with it.

Digital art dump

 Just posting a bunch of my previously made digital art in one huge lump just to have a record of me creating it. I had it on DeviantArt but with their AI stance as of late and creating their own ai generator, I decided to delete my DeviantArt account. So here it is here, I'll add titles and descriptions later.

Old Traditional Art Dump

 Catching my blog up with a huge dump of traditional art. This is some of my more favorite pieces that I have done over the last 20 years. Some recent many very old. Wanted to have them on the blog for record since after deleting my DeviantArt account.
