Alright, here it is, my second pastel painting. The style is much more folk art than my previous pieces, but I think it turned out well considering how tricky I find pastels to work with. This time I used a textured surface and really liked the tactile aspect of the whole process, using the pastel sticks and my fingers to blend the colors. I was a colorful mess afterwards, but it was definitely worth it!
I do have to laugh about how serious my girls look, at least the lovely lady on the left. She looks like she doesn't like to have her picture taken, but I hope she is smiling on the inside...
This afternoon, I am going to start another background using image transfers. I love the unpredictability of the end result and can't wait to show you tomorrow what I end up with!
Until then...enjoy your weekend!!
