Hahahaha as long a you enjoy what you are doing that is all that Matters! I paint, I used mixed media, I revamp old things, I get bored easily so have to diversify hehehehe

Thanks everyone!!  Michele I use various texture pastes.  the one used here in the painting is Heritage  3D Contour paste.  It is course with fine like sand in it.  It comes in various colors but I am sure if you just get the normal light colour you could add any color acrylic paint for the color your need.  Deco Art Snow Tex is also great, and a finer sand in it. I also use our South African Dala texture paste you also get the course or fine.  Another one I used was Deco Art Decorating paste.  I used this to flowers and build up the petals.  Hope this helps you !

Hi Shell, To answer your question...it all depends on the drawing (the size of it) and also how much time I choose to spend on it in a day. Sometimes I can finish a cp drawing in 3-4 hours and other times it may take me a day or two working on it a little at a time. Sometimes I don't really have the time to finish it in one day..I may have other things to do, but if I really want to get it done, I'll put in as much time as I can in one day.

Thanks so much Michele - I'm also pleased.

yes I see the problem with the lighter one, but I was pleased with the shape of the bald head and he is a 'light' looking man.   The second was in charcoal, so of course darker.

fun to do them both.

Thank you Shell for your beautiful comment on my painting! I'm so glad you like it.

Hi Shell, do you mean how do I get the softness in the pastels or the graphite drawings? In the pastels, I just use my fingers to blend and the medium is so soft anyway so they just naturally will look soft. In the graphite drawings, sometimes I use my finger or a kleenex to smudge. Nothing too difficult and anyone can do it.
