|Lemon #5, pastel, 5 x 7 inches sold|
Another little painting of color, texture and light. Once again, on Pastelmat but this time I wanted to contrast the smooth plate with the texture of the lemon so more soft pastels were used for additional pigment to move around. Usually, a firmer pastel is the best choice for me to get spontaneous strokes on this surface. See a couple steps below.
