First, I would like to say thank you for all your replies of encouragement, suggestions, and welcoming me into this group. There are so many talented individuals in this community! Sending you another before and after. Not too happy with the results. This piece was put away and let unfinished (and still might be) because someone I looked up to and respected criticized it. Without my blending stump I am lost (although a nice elderly man in the Walmarts craft department, suggested I use a Q-Tip, just doesn't quite do the trick for me). Did buy some oil pastels and wanted to buy some watercolor pencils but money was an option and honestly it must have taken me a half hour of running back and forth deciding whether to buy them or not before I finally made my decision and put them back on the shelf for about the 2nd or 3rd time. Hope everyone is having a great day!
Be Well All,
CrystlMgck (aka "m")
