Angel Painting In The Works

Here is the beginning of an angel painting in pastel that I am currently working on. I haven’t painted an angel in so long, I figured I would like to try painting some again. I really like the way this is turning out and I can’t wait to finish her, but I am being extra cautious and want to get everything just right! I’m using a lot of scrap paper!

Anyway, I can’t wait to share the finished piece. I will try to complete her after Easter. Please drop by again in a week or so as she should be completed by then! Crossing fingers!

Stay safe!

Another Angel In The Garden in Pastels

Again, my love for angels made me try another one, and of course, I am running out of titles as I love to place them in the garden many times.  I could actually have “Angel In The Garden” several times now,but until I can find another name for this, here is another angel in the garden :).  I am also not sure if I am finished with this yet, but I think I may be.  Just wanted to get this out there. Hope you like it.

Lancaster Morning and Angel With Flowers

Here are two new pastel pictures I have been working on.  Since Christmas, it has been so hard to keep working on my art, but I finally started up again.  I tried my hand at a landscape with Lancaster Morning.  I took a photo I had from our last trip to PA and added an air balloon to it.  Then, I just had to do  one of my best-loved subject…angels. I like the way this came out so soft and looking like Spring!

Hope you like them!  Back to the drawing board…so I can show you more. 🙂Image

Pastel Angel Girl In Progress

I am now taking a needed break from watercolor and trying my hand at doing pastels again.  I love pastels!  I can do them rather quickly and I love the realistic result.  I just love adding highlights here and there and making the wispy pieces of hair.  The pictures  seem so alive.  I can’t wait to finish this one.  I am having a hard time trying to decide what color the background should be, and just praying I don’t mess this up!  Oh well, back to the drawing board.  Hope you like what I have done so far. 🙂

New Pastel Drawing “Angel Kiss”

Here is the newest addition to my ever-changing portfolio.  This is a picture that was inspired from an old picture taken of my daughter when she was little kissing little sister Kelsey on the head.  Every time I looked at the picture, all I could picture was an angel kissing baby Jesus, and I finally drew it.  Hope you like it!

Pastel Picture of Angel With Baby Deer

Just completed this pastel picture.  I was ready to throw this one away several times!  I tried this one on the smooth side of Canson pastel paper, instead of the textured side, thinking it would be smoother. It is, but I did not like the way the pastel blended on this side.  It was like drawing chalk on a blackboard, and I get chills just mentioning that!  I erased the hair several times and the dress on the angel wasn’t what I expected as well   All in all, when I finished , I was not really happy, until I showed my kids…who LOVED it.  I guess it was that I knew all the problems I had with it that didn’t make me happy.

But I guess I am happy with it now.

Here she is…Angel With Baby Deer.

New Pastel Picture “Angel With Lamb”

I’m sorry, I know I should be writing more, and I will, but for now, I am trying my pastels out with a fury!  I just finished this one and I am so happy with it.  I love the way the lamb turned out, better than I ever expected.  I have been going on “you tube” for looking up tutorials on how to work with pastels, and have been finding many good ones out there.  The one I like the most is “Colin Bradley”.  He is the one that I followed on doing my lamb. Hope you like it.  I just can’t stop! 🙂
