Toronto Skyline in pastels



Using 6″x8″ Canson Watercolor paper, Nu Pastels, and black acrylic paint, I created a simple Toronto Skyline.

The first time I finished it, I decided to spray it with protective spray, and it completely destroyed it! Ironic, but a lesson well learnt. I had to actually redo it, which ended up pretty quick the second time around. Here’s a picture of the ruined version.


Tomorrow I leave Toronto behind for a vacation to London and Paris! Keep checking srisarts.tumblr.com for photo updates :)

Flower on blue paper!


This past week, I went shopping in Toronto and decided to make a stop at Curry’s! I hadn’t been there in a long time, and I was like a kid in a candy store! Anyways, they had some paper on sale, so I got a roll of blue paper for $0.25. I decided to get some darker blue Nu Pastel to work on this toned paper. I have never worked on toned paper in any other colour except for grey, and that too, I’ve only worked on commercially toned paper once before my recent card-making spree. I actually really enjoyed it, and I will probably be using the blue paper for another card or two in the near future.

The first image is the card alone, and the second is the new card along with the two other cards I recently made.
