12″ x 12″ pastel (unframed)
Finished just in time for a show this weekend!
This was such a challenging painting. There were brief moments when I doubted my ability. It’s a common theme when I’m working but I always turn it around and tell myself that I can do it.
Another hurdle was the leaves because they were quite blurry in the photo, so I needed to wing it.
As much as I love working with acrylics I always come back to pastels and a realistic representation of the objects. I just love the application process of this medium, and the challenges of realism.
