back to refraction/mid afternoon

6x6 pastel and watercolor on UArt
It's amazing to me how much my work with oils is now effecting my work with pastels. With a pre-selected palette and the idea of refraction I painted this one. Much more satisfying after yesterday's serious dog (sorry Sam...I didn't mean an insult on DOGS).
Tonight is the Wolf Kahn lecture. I will blog about it soon. Then early tomorrow I am off for an away painting weekend.

FYI-just finished a book that you might like-it is called crow planet by Lyanda Haupt- not about painting-but -some of it applies!

Taking the name of Dog in vain, eh?

I bombed today. See my comment on Painter's Process (randalldavidtipton.blogspot.com).

Wolf Kahn and a weekend break! You so deserve it. Enjoy yourself!

Hi! I do not think your painting from yesterday was a "dog"! I rather like it, as it shows something more internal. The one from today, while technically strong, has less tension in it, and is a beautiful picture, but less substance(?) I hope I am articulating myself correctly, and not insulting you. They are BOTH lovely but yesterdays is great too. :-)

Thanks Susan!

Hi RRosemsn and welcome to my blog! Thanks for the book suggestion. I will check it out.

Hi SAm...you bombed today??? I will have to go see what you are talking about.

Hi Sally, Thanks for taking the time to comment. So you don't think it's a dog. Somehow i can't seem to see through my disappointment on that one. I don't feel insulted, don't worry. It's just very interesting that others see it differently. Thank you!

I bet this one was satisfying to do, Loriann - such a nice feeling and texture to it. I love the pinkish color in the foreground...
