Canson watercolor on heavyweight sketch paper, 15x9 cm (6x3.6in)
Then this evening, I used them as subject of a quick little pastel painting, using a much looser style than I usually do.
Soft pastel on Tiziano, brown background under pumice ground, 11x11cm (4.25x4.25 in)
In a bit of a slump for a while, but getting going again. Only doing sketches until I finish getting some paintings framed and ready to hang for a gallery jurying. There are only two 2D slots open and stiff competition, but I'm still excited and pleased to have been invited. The small ones were easy to frame, but I am re-doing a larger one. Today I took it all apart and redid it, and like the way it looks much better. Tomorrow I will finish it up. I hope. The glass feels a bit long, and the only way to remove a small amount of glass safely is by grinding. And I only have hand tools...
