All My Marbles Completed

Here is the final - All My Marbles - is finished! Well pretty near anyway. I will set it aside for the next day or two and see if anything needs to be fixed. I have already seen a few edges of the marbles that I need to "round" out but I'm thinking it will take very little to correct things.

It has been a whole lot of fun to try to get the glasslook of each marble and all the reflections in the right spot. There is a lot going on in this little pastel - bigger wouldn't have made it better. This original is 6"x 6" and will be for sale on my website at It will also be a limited edition of 200 prints. These prints will be on a fine archival paper and printed with archival inks. Let me know if you are interested.

I've been watching this painting's fantastic. You caught all the highlights and shadows perfectly. Wonderfully done as usual. I've had a photo of some marbles for some time, you've inspired me to take a second look at and to seriously attempt it in my usual carbon pencil.

Thanks Marsha - I had so much fun drawing them. I think it is my new favorite ;-) Get those marbles out!
