In the Shade
Pastel, 9" x 12"
23 May 2010
This is my last stab at pastels for now. I picked them up because I wanted to draw in color. Alas, I find myself stabbing, fumbling, blowing and swearing.
I started in on this thinking - it's a weekend discipline. Do it even if you don't want to. So I did. It's possible that my frustration is with scale. If I use pastels again, I may have to work on a larger scale. Or grind them up and use them with another tool. I love the richness of color but not my clumsy process. Onward!
