Sheer Bliss

After almost a year away from my arting adventures, I went back to my comfort zone of subject matters but chose to notch up the challenge a wee bit with a different medium on my favourite surface, the Ampersand Pastelbord. 

I'd read the Pastelbord's were great for coloured pencils but that the oil based pencils, which I prefer, were not very happy with this surface.  Frankly, that surprised and shocked me and I wanted to see for myself. 

You be the judge.  :)

Tri-Tone Pencils
It was "sheer bliss" to not only be arting again, but to find another happy combination for my artwork -- I'll be back to this surface and medium again!  :)


  1. This is gorgeous, Von, and you definitely proved wrong that assumption that the Ampersand Pastelbord was not a good substrate for oil-based pencils! Bravo! Glad to see you creating again, my friend!

    1. Thank you very much Kay. As always, I appreciate your thoughts and cheer. (((Hugs)))

  2. Von, this is stunning! Never tell an artist you can't because they will prove you wrong & you did! Super job <3 Cathy V.
