  1. I loooooove your work, Sandy! You evoke such a rich experience in your paintings. Well done

  2. thanks Dale, It is something I have been working on..It depends on the type of town that you send your work too if it sells as some people just don't take to bright colours.


  3. Oh My God...they are bloody adorable...what a fantastic painting, and AGAIN...briliant colours...Sandy. are these oil pastels...I do not get these brilliant colours with my semi-hard Rembrant Pastels???

  4. Hi Vesna, no these are just run of the mill soft pastels. Maybe the difference is that i spray in between each layer keeping the layers fresh in colour. i don't know about you but I can become very bogged down in thick pastel if I don't spray. that is the only thing I can think of.

  5. Thanks for the reply Sandy, and the e-mail...hmmm, maybe I use my too softly and I wipe them down with cotton they are more of a wash than a strong color...I'll try this thick pastel and spray technique...I'll keep you posted :)
