Study#2 for Tucked Away

Study#2 - Tucked Away, pastel, 9x6 inches
​As much as I loved the angles of the buildings in Study#1 for Tucked Away, they kept getting in my way as I tried to simplify the scene. I used a vertical format this time to emphasize what the story is about (the "tucked away" house). Different paper, different application of pastel. 9x6 inch image, Wallis mounted on Gatorbord.


  1. Love your tucked away paintings and always enjoy your beautiful color schemes. What adhesive do you use to mount pastel papers to foam board or other surface? Thanks for sharing your paintings and knowledge!

    1. Thank you Judy. I use Sure Mount. Guess I can't include a photo in a comment so I'll post a photo of the jug tomorrow.
