NEW Mixed Media ~ Lit Path

{"Lit Path" by me}

Playing around with another style. After participating in Kelly Berkey's Stretching to Sketch challenge and realizing how much I missed drawing I decided to try yet another style. This mixed media piece involves pastels with a focal point of acrylic paint. I don't have a photo of the entire piece yet, but to give you an idea it's done on a wooden block and I painted the sides black so it really makes the drawing/painting pop. It was definitely fun to try something new and I hope to have a couple more pieces done using this style soon.

Also thanks to the talented Kelly for the sweet blog post about my charcoal drawing gifted to her hubby. :) You can read more about it HERE.

Oh my goodness..Jodi, I'm lovin' the beginnings of this piece! What a great choice for the focal! I too moved away from drawing for a while..and just recently have developed a renewed interest in it. I'm still in awe with the rendering of Kelly you created! FABULOUS WORK! I will be visiting back with you to see this newest piece as it progresses. It already has the nicest feeling to it. Have fun sweet friend!
