7″ x 7″ pastel painting

I’ll be working on paintings that are more abstract than usual for a while. Partly because it’s just so much fun and because I’m working on a new project! I’ve been hired to paint a series of about 15 paintings. At this point, I can not share the work because it’s for a start-up company. When the project is complete and goes public I will post all the paintings. So stay tuned.
I tried a new pastel paper for this painting called Pastelmat. When I first touched it I imagined that it wouldn’t hold the pastel particles well. It’s a very smooth paper, unlike the sanded paper I usually use. To my surprise, it holds an amazing amount of pastel with hardly any dust! It’s more difficult to blend which works out perfectly for my plan to paint abstractly for the next month or so.
