  • Angel picture I did using pastels

    ...you can vote without me knowing who you are then you don't have to worry about hurting my feelings. I need honest opinions. I haven't done any real art work in quiet some time...I used to paint but I have this shake in my right hand that makes it impossible to do details with a fine brush anymore... I did this as a practice run after buying some new pastels today...I also have to say I haven't done alot with pastels in the past anyway...just off and on and usually with other mediums like colored pencils, or some paint ...my thing was always painting. Anyway we have three bullentin boards at church that need some kind of Christmas type pictures on them..we have none...I did some work on decorating them last weekend and would like to do some pictures on them...I was thinking one of the wise men on camels...one of the sherpards seeing the angels and I know the next one should be a naivity scene but I don't think I am talented enough to do that....as it is this angel has no face because I would just mess it up...

    Anyway do you think I need more detail on it or leave it looser like that? As I said detail can be difficult for me so my work might have to be more abstract whether I want it to be or not...sigh.



    God bless

    Picked I like it even though I was looking for the absolutely amazing option.

    That is an excellent picture
    I love you more than words could say.
    You're stuck with me again today!
    So wake up, silly sleepy head!
    It's time for you to get out of bed,
    Open your eyes, for goodness sake!

          Now are you all being honest? You don't have to post....you can just vote and not say anything at all? I only spend an hour on this mostly just getting my bearing on using pastels again...its like a practice run... Not saying I can do any better...cause I don't know....

          I can't take very good pictures....I always forget to buy film for the camera for one thing....

            Julie I didn't vote because my answer isn't on there.

            It's absolutely beautiful and it really touches me. I love everything about it. The position of her hands, the colors, and the lack of facial features. The whole thing flows and just invites me into it. Makes me want to stay awhile.

            And pastels are my absolute favorite medium.

            Seriously, LOVE it. LOVE it.

              I think it is great. It looks like it is flying naturally, with another objective in mind; but I like angels.............it is very good. You could just paste Nates face on it..........

                I was looking at an angel on the internet that I think looks alot better then mine... Her hands are like that cause in this picture she is holding vine with flowers on it...I didn't think I could handle that yet...lol. and it has stars and stuff in the background that I didn't care for...I just needed a general thing to look at.

                Anyway sure you can have it...but I gotta get some kind of spray to keep it from smearing...I used to use hairspray but now all I have is those sqrinting kind... And figure out how to mail it... Maybe if Slug growns hair he can tell me what to do...heh.

                  I HONESTLY LOVE IT TOO!!!!

                  It has a distinct sense of fluidity and motion. Its truly beautiful!

                    Basic digital art, and photography are about all I can handle.
                    Creating from the basics, like you did I can't handle in my dreams let alone when I am awake.

                      I agree with everyone else! It's absolutely wonderful and I wish I had a big print to hang over my fireplace! It brings me such peace when I look at it... it's wonderful. Thank you for sharing it with us! I'd love to see more!

                          thanks all, your replies mean alot to me...especially lately I have been feeling down about alot of things right now, so its makes me feel good.......I keep reading the comments on here and looking at it trying to see what you see.... I really didn't think it was very good...

                          Its not very big, I did it on a sheet of colored contruction paper as practice. Now I spend the rest of the evening doing the wize man one...I know its suppose to be wize men, but you have to pretend the others are behind the first guy out of the scene.... I just did one with the city off in the distance and the star...Its too big to scan though...I will see if my mom can use her digtal camera to take a picture of it and send it to me through email and get it on.

                          I just did a silhouette of the wize man on a camel and the city...after all you can't see stars in the day time (at least not very well...lol)
