It may be hard to believe, but the composition for this started with my previous post's painting. I was fooling around with ideas this morning, based on this composition and this emerged. It's pastel and influenced by some oil pastels I saw at an art sale this weekend, although I'm sure no one would confuse that artist and me! It's fun to work with pastels because I can go in and add lights. It's hard because it's messy and it's hard to tell exactly where the mark is going to be on the paper because of the size and shapes of the chalks. A nice, pointy, round watercolor brush is much more precise.
