    Kayty they are all lovely! I'd sooner work in graphite than know I have a smudge-phobia! Graphite for me is a little more forgiving:)

    Eek graphite makes me panic, I am at much more risk of smudging with graphite than pastel!! At least I can whack a pale background colour over any smudges on the paper if I need to with pastel, graphite I'm not brave enough to try that with yet. Crazy to think that graphite used to be my main technique, now I avoid it like the plague!

    Funny, when my commissions are going a bit slow I desperately want more commissions. When I'm flat out with them like I am now, all I want to do is have some quiet time to do some 'different' pieces and try out some bolder, looser work.

    So true! When I get commission work, I'm at it all night every night until its done, I become a recluse! I find it becomes 'work'! My husband said ' don't ever say yes to another commission' haha!
    I'm flattered that people will call upon me to do work for them.....but I find not having too much choice if any on the subject matter drains my enthusiasm!

    I always say, I fall in love with a piece while I'm creating it, and when I'm done I'm ready to divorce it! (And that's usually 200hrs later if you include the hanging hardware and varnishing!)

    Sounds we like work in a similar way!!! I will lock myself in a room to do a commission, and just plug away until it's done. I enjoy doing them, and I love making people happy when they receive them, but hell it is A LOT of work. And now that I'm starting back on full time work doing 40+ hours/week, my time is going to be draining away very quickly. My art does turn into 'work' when I am really busy. I don't rush them to get them done, but I don't enjoy doing them so much as when I can pick up a pastel and add bits and pieces to it as I see fit.

    I like your pastel work! I recently started with oil pastels and still need to get the hang of them, they're very different from graphite pencils. Great work :)

    Last and largest of 4 graphite pieces due to be sent off to Germany. It's been a big relief to finish this project, particularly this last piece which took me well over 60 hours to complete. Not easy when you're training at the police academy 10+ hours each day, with a 1 1/2 hour commute, and 3 horses to keep in work. It'll be a nice break being able to do some of my pastel commissions again as they are so much quicker.
