ROSE Painting - Work in Progress...

I worked on my painting this weekend that I am doing in my painting class.  I am LOVIN' how it is turning out especially after I stepped back from it and took a look.  Sometimes it is good to find a stopping point & then go back to your work either later in the day or even days later.   I am good with the progress I have made today & feel fine waiting to continue til class.  Now...onto another craft project!!
Oh by the way -- new fall banners and a new small painting have been added to my Etsy store hercreativesoul Please stop by and check them out plus the other items! Thanks for looking & reading my blog!!

New Canvas - In Progress

Lovin' how my newest canvas is working.  Was a little hesitant because had never sketched directly onto canvas and used color pencils.  Love my Prismacolor pencils and plan to use some Faber Castel pitt markers - LOVE LOVE them!!  Cannot wait to show the final result!
