island reflections

6x18 about pastel on Uart
Stillness with glow was my concept. I have learned to sometimes use chinese white watercolor in some sections underneath to restore the luminosity on toned paper. I wish Uart made white paper.

Wow, you definitely achieved your goal with this one! Here's a link to Armand Cabrera's blog and some good thoughts about concept. The last paragraph is excellent.

I wish UArt came in white too - I can't always cover that yellow undertone.

Beautiful composition, Loriann, and lovely color. I like the long horizontal format here.

Thanks Donna.And thanks for the link. I checked out Armand's blog. Good stuff. I especially liked the idea about the last moments. Concept is so important, it provides the focus.

Hi Brian. Thanks for your input!
