|Cedar River Picnic, pastel, 25x18 inches|
Soon I will travel to Roseburg, Oregon to judge the Pastel Society of Oregon's 21st Biennial Membership Show at Gallery Northwest. I'll also teach a 3-day workshop for members. After working in oil since last spring, it is fun to return to return to pastel. I found this piece of Wallis sanded paper in my flat file. I gessoed it to a yellow tone years ago. I completed a foundation sketch with charcoal and sprayed it with Lascaux before the application of pastel.
