Multi-tasking And Multi-painting

I'm definitely a type A.  I make lists and try to get in as much as possible during the day.  So, no surprise, I'm working on three paintings this week.  I've actually never done this before, but I have a custom house portrait to finish

plus I'm trying out two different kinds of paper.  I always use Stonehenge, but lately I've had a hankering to try some sanded pastel papers.  So the first one I bought was Ampersand pastel paper which comes in several colors but I bought white.

This is 11" x 14".  The paper is adhered to a hard board and my plan is to use fixative and varnish when I'm done.  I can then pop it into a frame without glass.  I also ordered Uart pastel paper 800 which comes in a tan color.

Love this paper, but it eats up pencils like crazy!  I've already gone to Dick Blick to buy pencils twice this week!  I also plan to use fixative & varnish on this one.  I'll keep you posted on my progress!


  1. The house looks great and the other two look interesting so far. Love the pears.
