questions for you and experimentations with memory

6x12 pastel
This morning I left my pastels in the studio. I was cleaning and reorganizing. Only my watercolors remained in the car. By doing this I found another great way to work. In the field I did the watercolor underpainting- fast. Then I memorized. Below is the watercolor and above is the finished pastel.
Sometimes mistakes are your best friend.
On another note... I will be interviewing a local art store manager who also happens to be a conservator. We have conversed a few times and when I learned that her other expertise I asked her if I could interview her. Now here is where you come in.

Do you have questions about the archival nature of materials and processes?

Now is your time to have them answered. Write them as a comment or email them to me. Thanks!!!

Love your blog! One question for the archival specialist--whats the best backing board for framed pastels thats still reasonably priced and thick enough to be stiff? Is foamcor acceptable? Thanks!
