For the past month or so I have been exploring the world of pastels. It is hard, frustrating and extremely fun. I have now fallen into the pastel addiction where I need more and more pastels! But for now I have Karen Margulis' Terry Ludwig set so I am pretty much "set" for now.
Here are some paintings so far that I have painted using different papers. I like funky!!
And here is my latest pastel journey video.

I bought some Tulips from Will Dixie the other day and it's amazing how long these Tulips have lasted. It's interesting that at first their stems are drooping then as they open up the stems get stronger and stand up. So I have painted these Tulips several times. Here is a quick progression of the painting of these beautiful dark reddish pink Tupils.

This is how I draw everything out. I place the grid from Photoshop them place the same grid on my canvas. Then it transfers correctly.
