sing the pinks
14 x18 pastel on printmaking paper (Rives BFK?)
This should be named,"what can I get away with?" I know I talk all the time about the importance of value. To prove it to myself (again) I decided to use "my" color and only adhere strictly to value while feeling autumn morning. As a reference I used the black and sepia painting that I completed on Saturday "Less is More" . My paper is different too and a different method of applying pastel (no watercolor) so that I was free from my habits. Who knows what would happen. Experimenting helps me move forward. I may do more of these.
repost:After painting on location this morning I did a second version with more local color.
Which do you prefer?
