watercolors and pastels

I’ve been experimenting with watercolors. My painting style is definitely not conducive for the media. But I thought I’d give it a try. Dark to light, layering one color over another with thin washes….. ah, no. I’m posting a picture of the watercolor being worked over with pastels. Thought I’d publish it before I go too far. I’ve done this in the past with drypoint prints  and even used acrylic paint thinned to shade some of them. But painting with H20 is different, it seems. No matter. I’ll see what happens with  pastels.

I’m also posting an angel that I reworked. It is  6 winged like the ones in St. Marks, Venice. The color may present as very orange but that is the result of the digital camera and lighting.
