"Quick Sketch, Aspens" -
Pastel on Tobacco Brown canson paper, about 6 x 12. This was a class demo, and took about 20 -25 minutes. I love doing landscapes on this brown color, (which has subtle speckles) - It really makes the blues and green sing!
Makes me happy.
The row of colors along the bottom are the various individual pastels that I used.
"Trees of Asilomar",
At ten feet wide, this digital work is one of the largest artworks I've done. I often use the grid structures because I like how each piece is it's own abstract compositions, yet contributes to the whole.
It cooled off a lot yesterday, so I went for a nice long walk. I came upon some giant wooden spools for cable with amazing surfaces and visual themes. I took lots of pictures, but most of them will need much fussing. Here are two that only required moderate transforming.
"THE MIDDLE OF THE JOURNEY", Pastel
The third generation of a long running journey series. This is one of three panels. (the other two are still in progress). It was included in the June show at the gallery at the Torpedo factory, always a stiff competition.
