Playing with Pastels

This week I decided to try pastels. This botanical piece is pastel over a “failed watercolor”. I love reusing a “failed” piece for experimentation. The work of Odilion Redon has always inspired me. As I was drawing I had his work in my mind. I hope to lighten areas to broaden the values.



Working in oil and acrylic this week. “Rough Seas” is oil on canvas. Lots of palette knife work on this painting.
