almost evening


18x 27pastel on arches paper
I am using the same process, but this time I allowed myself two colors- deep sepia and black. I am breaking my own rules (one color only) because black seemed to harsh, sepia too whimpy, so a combo was necessary. I also am starting to feel my stroke, be less tentative. My goal is emotional content through value and it seems stroke becomes more important, probably because I can no longer rely on color as my most powerful  tool. What does Richard say?????.... value does the work and color gets the glory. hmmmmmmm.

I like this one a lot Bud ette.
Your strokes look so free and full
of energy. I like the two color look.
I also think the black is great too.
Looks like your staying busy.

Your painting Buddy.

P.S. I need to paint something.
