step by step....Mom's Field 21x28 Metamorphosis of a painting. Pencil on textured ground, oil underpainting, wiped, 1st application of pastel, 2nd layer of pastel To me, a studio piece is very involved. The concept is strong and the image is no longer present. Therefore my ability to "dance" with the pastel is heightened. It really is an entirely different process. My Mom's favorite arias play in the background. More next time.
