6.5 x10 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
Prodded by my work with Deborah, I am trying to stretch the ideas into my pastel. Therefore I approached this one completely differently. Beginning with a Quinacridone magenta underpainting I tried to think of my pastels as glazes. Darks are thinner and more transparent and lights tend towards being opaque.
I began this one yesterday and it wouldn't let me sleep. Finally I got out of bed (Kins the muse cat did too) and surrendered to the painting.
