Paint Party Friday – Pastels last Saturday
I am so art deprived at the moment. Art neglected, blog neglected, real life eating me alive. However, my sister kidnapped me and my eldest daughter last Saturday and locked us all in a room with some cheap art supplies and made us create. This is what I came up with.
Why is it that given free range I usually end up drawing swirls? Cheap pastel on scrapbooking card with a dash of softer more expensive Rembrandt pastel on top.
I also started a flame creation, but didn’t finish it.
Pretty skungie looking in the areas that haven’t been covered fully, but I like the flow and really, it is just an adaptation the technique in my painting Hot Wind.
Sometime last week I also made a vain attempt to start some more experiments with acrylic. Nothing finished, but here is a hint.
Hopefully I’ll get something done this weekend.
Don’t miss out on all the other great paint party peeps, there is some fantastic art out there.
(driven to create, but denied the time to do it)
Love all the movement in these pieces! 🙂
I agree with Crystal, lots of movement going on. Quality time, that’s what your shared with your sister and daughter. Excellent. Have a great weekend.
Wonderful colors that travel all around the page! So cool!
Good for your sister! I love the boldness of the color from the pastels. I am intrigued with your last picture. Are those salt crystals?
Greens color are perfects….¿with ice? Saludos
that experiment looks fascinating. And I take it you like green? 🙂
Lush – agree with Mari – makes me think of Cuban cocktails!
Swirls? Me too. Yours look great and looks like you used your creative hand
I tend to do the spirals a lot, too. My hand just likes to move that way I think. 🙂 Looks like you are loving greens and yellows right now.
HURRAH for inter-family kidnapping and forcing you to enjoy some art time! LOL. Loving the greens today. HAPPY PPF!
One of my most favorite colors….and I love playing, and spirals always seem to show up in my work too! I can’t wait til your hint is revealed!
I must say I love the color (greens are my favorite). The swirl is cool but I think I may be partial to the flame.
oh how fun, your art and that you locked yourselves in a room to create.
nice work this week!
The colors are my favs! And the spiral? Best invention since the wheel♥♥♥
So great you got kidnapped!!
What a wonderfully vibrant spiral and I love the flame too! Gorgeous!
Gorgeous color … shimmering …
WOW Love the colors of your pastels and the hint shot..I’ll be back to find out more about that one for sure! Happy PPF!
I really like your green flames.
So glad that you got away and had some time to create 🙂
I am so intrigued by your “hint”… fascinating! I can hardly wait to see what it is!
Wishing you more creative time (and that real life stops eating you alive)!
We all go through lulls, when life gobbles us up! However love the colors and patterns. Very pretty!
Lovely colors in each of these. Great work. Glad you got to do some creating. I’m intrigued by your experiment. Can’t wait to see the details!
Hostage Art! I love it!
How fun! I’m partial to the flames. They really caught my eye. That last piece really has me curious. You must share more of that one! 🙂
What a wonderful thing your sister and daughter did for you. Love the color palette you are using on these! Reminds me of lemon lime slushie from DQ. My fav is the flame! Anxious to see it finished.

What a wonderful sister you have! Cool swirls.
the green swirls are so full of energy! I love that you all paint together! sounds fun.
