aaahhh...pastel. There's nothing like it! After a seven month break from pastel and a journey into oil painting, I'm back. This is a piece that I painted in 2011. I loved it but after looking at it for a year, I felt it lacked 'content.' I can't explain what that means but it is the word that comes to mind. Last night I added some content and now I'm happy with it and happy to be working with pastel again.
