Day 324 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 324 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 324 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

Kind of a new thing for me - and too fun!

>>Created with soft pastels and pastel pencils on 2.5x3.5 blue strathmore 500 series paper. About 2 hours.

Inspired by *papatheo's stunning photo! [link]

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $11 + shipping: [link]

i saw the card, and said, this is new, and then read ur description that its new to you :D

i think,U shud do more waterfalls, your mastery with chalk does give u the edge with the water translucency,
this is a a nice scene, with motion in it, very Peaceful, just sound of water streams falling off the curb/short cliff.

Long back, i had wall calender, with all most beautiful pictures of waterfalls around the world it was cool.

That tree with multicolor leaves adds the punch of color necessary.
I think that was absolute brilliance of doing that open background instead of forrest on the other side of the river.

I really like such weather, with dark low hanging clouds [choice of -green blending gray- color for clouds was cool]

cheerz!!!

Wow this is pretty awesome! Water, especially moving water is very difficult to draw and you got it with pastels, on an ACEO... very impressive!
