The Village

I had just got myself a new set of soft pastel pencils when I created this. I had been using the sticks, but wanted to give my hand a try with the pencils. I’m use to using charcoal and graphite pencils so I didn’t really think there would be too much of a difference. My theory proved correct. However, I found that the soft pastels pencils blend out more easily and beautifully than charcoal or graphite pencils. If you like to draw get yourself a set of these pencils. Artist to artist…I really think you’ll be pleased with them. I found mine at Micheal’s Art and Crafts while I was in town.

  1. From what I have seen of your
    Art work you have a natural ability 🙂

    I just noticed this was an old one. Very nice, though. I was going to say you haven’t done one of these scenes lately, but you haven’t done this one lately either! I like the shading on the main tower, it gives it that old weathered/stained look.

  3. This is so peaceful, someplace to wander through and search maybe for a picnic spot beyond.

  4. Awesome, Deb!
    I love materials that blend nicely… so much fun! That’s one of my favorite things about a really soft charcoal, too!

  5. Nice soft colours on this one Deb.

  6. Love it, Deb. I’m always amazed with your creations.
    I have toooons of work. 😦
    Big hugs.

    • I got more tons of them too, Cha! We need a big closet for just that. 🙂
      You have a great day! 🙂

  7. I really like what you’ve done.
    The sky looks amazing but nothing beats the texture you got on those buildings. It looks dreamy + surreal.
    I don’t want to make the drawing sound bad – but the texture you had on the wooden wall could use some work. I hope you work on that. I can’t wait to see where this goes.

    • Thank you, Yaakov. I did this one back in Feb of 2008. It’s getting all it’s going to get since it’s always been preserved with sealer.

      • Hm, I understand. I kind of meant it in the sense of future drawings. But 2008… you probably have it mastered by now…

        • I’m nor so sure of that. I’ve been working with watercolors and digital so much for the longest time that drawing sometime feels a bit foreign to me. But I’m sure if I did a few drawings it would all come back to me.

  8. I really like the soft colour you used for the painting

  9. pięknie,pastelowa i zarazsm pojawia się akcnt mocnego koloru,wspaniały obraz;-)

  10. You’ve done a very good job
