Graduation Gift and Experiments with Oil Pastels
Here's the bag I'm working on for my niece's graduation present. It's not sewn together yet - just waiting for the strap to dry after felting it this afternoon.
Here's the purple piece that I'm going to make a bag for me. It has silk on the top that you can barely see in this photo.
Here are some experiments with oil pastels. I started by doing a color chart. Then I used masking tape and used different colors in the yellow to red color range. I washed it with watered down red dye.
Here is a small sketch of a pomegranate in oil pastels and then a wash of brown acrylic paint.
This last one is done with a stencil and then a wash of yellow watercolor. It was fun experimenting.
