Paint Party Friday

Just short post to share with you a quick sketch  in oil pastel that I did on a piece of paper lying on my desk.

2 x2 inches on sketchbook paper.

And here is my latest practice piece of a bird.

I never seem to get the eyes right.

Linking this post to PAINT PARTY FRIDAY.



  1. I love your little drawings, Fuzzie! Your little birds are coming along nicely.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog and I'm glad you like my latest 2 boxes. As for the insides, many years ago I attended a course on embroidered box making and the teacher said "every box should contain a surprise" - I have never forgotten this, and even if it isn't completely surprising, at least the inside should be as attractive as the outside!


  2. beautiful work, I paint like you on paper lying around.

  3. A very sweet face and a very cute bird. You are such a good artist :D :D

  4. I love the expression of her eyes! She is beautiful!
    Just practising Carol.. the eyes of birds are a little difficult find where they should sit .. I can understand you --- was the same for me ..
    a good tip came from Dina Wakley ... every living being has to have a catch light in it's eyes..she said...
    Dina puts a bit of white with acrylic or white pen on all the eyes...
    since I do this too - I am more happier with the birdies eyes.
    Happy weekend

  5. Very pretty woman. She has such an expressive face like she's thinking of something deep.

  6. you create such really lovely things with your oil pastels-beautiful!

  7. Your work with oil pastels is amazing

  8. Both so sweet... I love your style of loveliness... all such adorable characters...birds and all!

  9. I can't seem to get the hang of the oil pastels on regular size paper! That you can do it on a 2" x 2" piece amazes me!

  10. I really like the girl's expression and the colours you used! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Very nice! I really respond to the way you use materials, especially the gessoed piece in your masthead. Nice work! I love oil pastels as well.
