February 8 Flowers near Blue Hill
14x14, pastel on wallis, unfinished
Working on wallis paper is so different than the surface I make. It is so much smoother with no crevices. I guess the activity needs to be on the surface, rather than relying on the contrast of my active marble dust crevices to the serene top. Here is one I have been working on for 3 days with a full watercolor under -painting. Mid tones I know are the secret, but also the struggle. This is once again from Maine, near Blue Hill, like the one on January 30th, same place, different time.
