Aggravated with all the white pencils

Frustrated with the whites.  i have tried Chinese white from several brands and even the Luminance which is normally wonderful, but I just can't get the highlight and fine detail bright enough. Trying to get a hold of the colored pencil powdered pigment titanium white, but the only place I can find it has some weird site issue.  So I can't get all my details and shadowing in till I get some sort of better white.  But I like it so far.  I am thinking a pastel chalk brushed background.

Doing a little work

Finally feel a bit normal again, but I am not totally back to normal from surgery that will come with time.  I am finally able to do a bit of drawing so  I am working on a seashore right now.
However I still have not finished my other stuff. Ehhh we all have a few bad habits!

That's about all I have for now.  Life is getting better, many changes but often change is good!  I look forward to enjoying so new things in my life and more drawing and painting.  As soon as I can hike again to a place with some nice elevation I plan to bring my pencils or maybe my pastel chalks up to the summit of one of these mountains and draw!!

Open Heart Surgery One thing after another

Sorry but I had a bit of an emergancy and have been in the hospital for open heart surgery, I am just really starting to use the computer again - I honestly have not tried to draw or paint or anything, just trying to get back to normal, somethings I do with my arms really hurt my chest right now so I am really hoping this is not now a normal thing - cause I need to be able to draw and paint!!
