The beginning of pastel layers and denial


It's funny to me that the process of taking a photograph of an unfinished work makes it easier to see what is next. I guess it is the removal... or denial. It's as if inside my head it's saying, "That's not mine...oh look, if only that artist would..........." And then the answers are clear.

On another note, I was delighted to learn that my painting, Daybreak at Hawksbill Peak, is being used to promote the Shades of Pastel Biennial Exhibition. Check out the Wednesday August 12th, Pastel Journal Blog......click here- pastel journal blog. A big thank you to Pastel Journal for using it!

I'm anxious to see the next stage of your painting.
I can see the underpainting, believe me it would be hard for me to cover up something as beautiful as this underpainting. Interesting Loriann, you create two wonderful paintings for every one you do. Great work.
Until later.

Hi Doug,
Two paintings, eh? I guess you could look at that way. I just can't paint off a white surface so I underpaint. Enjoy your vacation.

Hi Jala, thanks...it has a very long way to go...I am not sure if my idea of staying within value 5-10 will be a good thing for me. Pastels with alot of white in them become unappealing (to me) quickly. We'll see.
