"Three White Flowers" Pastel on Fabriano paper
Here I am at week two, and I've completed a project I had begun a while ago. Some of the before photos will be included in this post, so you can see the evolution of this piece.
I have not been a lengthy writer on this blog since the main purpose is the art, but this week I felt like saying more. Art is judged by a variety of things, composition, color, use of the medium etc. This piece was created in a rather unorthodox manner, and the pastels are layers onto water color paper primed with a purple gesso paint. I've been experimenting with many mediums and different ways to utilize the mediums, this particular piece will only be one of two. I will be using other paper to pair with pastels, something that allows me to layer better. The "Lacey" effect is on purpose, I wanted more interest in the flowers than just painting a lifelike piece. I hope it moves you, or captures your attention for a while.
