Tonight I was clearing off the table in my studio and unearthed some more pastels. My table seems to become loaded with the materials that I'm currently working on and sometimes things get buried a little. That's ok, as within a few days its always a new discovery to find them again - either that or I have a short term memory problem.
So tonight I played around with a little pastel of a plum. Partially from memory, partially from references. I love the richness that pastel gives and the painterly qualities it has. Its instant gratification to satisfy the child in me.
