Friday Sketches - Week 8

Welcome to Friday Sketches.  This week I am continuing the use of my water Soluble wax pastels in my sketchbook.  As I discussed yesterday, simple scribbles and sketches can be made more exciting by the vibrancy of pastel and crayon. 

I use them a lot, especially when I am out and about.  They are simple to carry, no mess, easy to use, and can help you create some amazing intensity. Simple subjects like this fence can be made more exciting by using a vibrant color for the background.  These are simple ways to enhance your sketching habit and develop your eye for color.

I'm also sharing some lovely sketches from the participants of last weeks Friday Sketches.
