Three more Tisnikar studies

These first two were done with soft pastels:

and this with gouache:

Good news! M and a few people in my family have pooled together some money for my birthday (which is today btw) and decided to get me a nicer, better, faster digital camera ;) I've been craving this piece of gear for a long time. I love my first digital camera, but it only holds 3 megapixels per image, so it will be satisfying to take a few steps up in terms of resolution capacity. I also plan to get a nice macro lens. I'll be using the camera along with Dragon software hopefully some time next year in order to shoot this project.

added note: Many thanks to pdxsean for giving me solid camera advice about the Nikon D80. It helped to steer me in the right direction.
