This is another painting (actually I think it qualifies as a drawing) where I used a reference I had on my hard drive.
I’m working on loosening up my hand. I tend to focus on detail a lot, which is often good but I’d like it to be obvious that the work is in pastel from time to time. It was very hard to resist rubbing the pastel particles into the paper. I always layer but work them into each other. In this piece, I loosely layered one color over another without blending.
Fun!
Hope you like it.
