Back in the Studio with Pastels
I’m learning more about pastels each day! The pure pigment colors are awesome, if you don’t mind the dust, I woud recommend giving them a try.
Today’s artwork is a pastel and color pencil piece that I started in July. The title: Before the Dance” is a piece that took me awhile to figure out the background design. The young lady in this painting was about to perform a dance at the park. She is sitting down gathering her thoughts or concentrating just before the dance. I edited out the group of people that were standing around her waiting for the perfomance. I placed her in a peaceful and soft surrounding that I imaged best suited her poise.
