a new infatuation

about 10x14 pastel on watercolor
about 12x14 pastel on watercolor

about 4x6 pastel on watercolor

Yes, that's right, I have found a new love. I am trying to woo my new love to love me back...we will see what happens. I am using watercolor paper, sanded at different times in the process. a different variety of watercolor underpainting is used in each of these. I am playing with the variables within the same context.  Just searching.

You have such a gift for using color, Loriann, and the addition of texture only adds to the beauty of these paintings!

Thanks Jenny! Experimenting is a bit addictive to me.

Hi Donna! Thanks for checking in. My constant sanding is giving more texture.We will see what happens. How has your health been?

Hi Loriann - I'm doing a little better and hoping to begin painting again. Now to be able to simplify a scene like you did with these trees ... something to work toward! Thanks for sharing such great inspiration.

I'd hang any of these on my wall but I really like the way you can see the trunks of the trees in the 10x14.

Love the first one most. The texture is great, a bit Kahnesque.

Hi jala! That's when I forgot to sand the paper first and I simply applied watercolor. The pastel stayed on top of the bumps. Thanks for all of your comments!
