July 6,2018- my very dear , also very longtime close friend Gerda , brought me beautiful selections of color soft pastels from Alphacolor. just tried them once before.. mood right for the want to do nowexpression.. and here it is.. on textured water color paper. will work on it more. not much though,since do not want to loose the spontaneous in this expression... i like the wonderful smooth feel working with the pastels.. noticed, must not do the intense in pressure, since sticks break easy .. will experience with more. also the wet, where i can use the broken pieces, not waste the beautiful colors that way either wish for you a peaceful, happy inside feel , day.
