Trying pan pastels over ink.

Pan pastels over ink drawings.
  'Marigold,' ink and pan pastels., 12 by 12 ins., paper.

 'Stripey cat with girl', A4, paper.

Susie eating grass.

June's art:

I tried using pan pastels over a couple of ink drawings.  I like the effect and think I will experiment more with this combination, using different combinations of ink cross-hatching, ink washes, and applications of pan pastels.

Susie's week:

I planted some grass seeds in a pot on the window ledge and here is Susie eating her 'salad' delicately with her paw.  I thought she'd stick her nose into the pot and munch...

(N.B. Special cat's grass from Amazon.  But I suspect cats will eat any grass.)

Its been a mixed week for weather but mainly wettish.

Have a lovely weekend.

Bye for now!

I LOVE how you have combined the various techniques and media to get some great results, just beautiful. I hope Susie was not jealous of the Stripey cat. My Kitty liked ll sorts of grass and plants except the one I planted for her....I wish you both a great weekend, hugs, Valerie
