This was a fun week of experimentation.
I was going to do a post all about my delicious new Japanese watercolors that I found, but...well, I didn't. I still should. They are an absolute delight.
Japanese watercolor and pan pastel on Arches cold-pressed Artboard
Japanese watercolor, watercolor markers, and pan pastel on Strathmore Toned Gray
Landscape, Southeast Idaho

oil pastel and pan pastel on aubergine Colorfix primed cardstock, mounted on mat board
pan pastel on transparent oil pastel on blue mat board
The pan pastels on the transparent oil pastel were wonderful! And I loved using them on the other two landscapes, too...they were very subtle, but contributed a nice softness and additional subtlety in color. The zebracorn may not be done yet...the background could use some attention. And again, the Japanese watercolors are wonderful.
