Chalk Pastel Vase.

The title says it all. I swear this looks better in real life but I may still try to add some colour and darken the pre-existing pigments in the near future (for more vibrant photos). Here is a glass decorative vase I completed earlier this year, using brown recycled paper. I tried to capture the frosty aspect of the actual object. Let me know what you think. Hope you guys like.

Digital Photography Edits.

So, I am no pro at photoshop as I may have previously mentioned. The other day I got really bored and decided to fiddle around with some photos I snapped. Here's the end result. I'm not even sure I fully remember what I did. LOL. Go figure. Anyways, let's see if you folks can guess what the first edit is. I think the second image is pretty obvious, right?

Charcoal Art.

It's been a while since I last posted on this blog and there's a lot to share. Let's start with this charcoal piece: a flashlight and some batteries that I did some time ago.
This flashlight was significantly more difficult to draw than I'd anticipated. I totally forgot that drawing a line down the centre would have helped with symmetry. I won't make the same mistake twice!
The batteries were easy. Nothing spectacular. A combination of charcoal sticks (the soft, messy ones) and a charcoal pencil (hard) were used. I don't remember the kind of paper this is...oopsie.
Charcoal is a wonderful medium but very messy. It is also sure to show up any splits or cracks you may have in your fingernails and isn't always easy to wash out. If you get any stray charcoal fingerprints on your artwork, remember you can always use a kneaded eraser to clean up.
