YELLOW - 10

YELLOW10" round pastel on wood
Wednesday is a day I typically go to life drawing. So wonderful to be immersed in the art of painting from life! And I enjoy immensely on trying different supports and techniques.
Above, YELLOW, is a sketch completed in 45 minutes. This is on a wooden base and executed with underlying pastel washes. I've been playing here for am giving a classin November at Oasis on pastel washes with still lifes.More about that coming up later!
Below, RED CROSS, is the warm-up sketch I created during the same session. This is the 2nd and the wood substrate measures 7" x 4 1/2". This was createdas a preliminary facial study and to see the effectivenessof washes onto the wood base. Really like what I have going on!
