“Ladybug”, “Firefly”, “Snail”, “Rain” and “Seashell” Art Challenge

Ladybug - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 18Here is a look at day 18 to 22 of the #Shadowheartchallenge. This little one is “Ladybug” day 18 of the challenge. I’ve made her using Derwent Pastel Pencils and Graphite Pencil.

Firefly - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 19

This one I really, really like. I think because of the sweetness and the soft colors. It’s a firefly, day 19. Made with Derwent Pastel Pencils, Panpastel and Graphite Pencil.

Snail - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 20

And here is my little snail. I don’t really like snails, but this one, for day 20, is a cutie Used just a Graphite Pencil and a blending stump for this one.

Rain - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 21

When I saw the prompt for day 21, Rain, I immediately started singing this song by the band Travis. Question is, where does the rain come from…? I’ve made her with Derwent- and Caran d’Ache Pastel Pencils and Graphite Pencil.

Seashell - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 22

And the last one I’m going to show is day 22, Seashell. “The voice of the sea speaks to the soul”. Made her with a Graphite Pencil and a blending stump.

Otherwise not much to tell about these prompts, except I’ve had a lot of fun making them

Have a nice day! Be creative!

“Dryad”, “Satyr”, “Lost” and “Feline” Art Challenge

Dryad - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 14

And again a little update of the #Shadowheartchallenge I did in July.  (If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen them already https://www.instagram.com/janetrozenberg)

This one I’ve made the prompt of day 14 “Dryad”. A Dryad is a tree nymph, or tree spirit.

I’ve made her using Derwent- and Caran d’Ache Pastel Pencils and Graphite Pencil

Satyr - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 15

This little cutie is a “Satyr” for day 15. It’s a little creature with goat-like features. Of course mine became a girl with a little flowery dress

For her I’ve used a yellow Derwent Pastel Pencil and Graphite Pencil.

Lost - pencil drawing painting Shadowheartchallenge day 16

The prompt for day 16 was “Lost” and immediately I thought of a quote from a beautiful poem of Lord Alfred Tennyson “In Memoriam A.H.H.”, which he wrote for a dear friend.

“Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”

I’ve made her with Cretacolor Nero Soft 2 and a blending stump.

Feline - pencil pastel drawing painting shadowheartchallenge day 17

The prompt of day 17 was “Feline”. My parents sweet cat Boris passed away that week so I’ve made this little Feline in memory of him. R.I.P sweet little Boris.

I’ve also used Derwent Pastel Pencils and Graphite Pencil for him.

Have a nice day! Be creative!
