New materials and technique WIP

Been reading about using colored pencils on drafting film. Whoa! It's like butter... This is 9" x9" and is a WIP. Just thought I would share.

The surface is divine.

Okay. One more. Sorta' into an animal frenzy at the moment before I figure out what's "the next big thing".

12" x 16' soft pastel.

Quincy Man

This is Quincy. The Papillion. Happiest dog in the world. I wanted to try out a new sample of the Richeson pastel paper. The background was a rust color, a perfect fit for the Man.
Only 5" x 7". Soft Pastels.

My Eyes Adore You

This is Mudball, our standard poodle who has since passed on. A large crazy gal, that wasn't into haircuts. This pastel on velour, 14" x 13".

Dining In Two

I did this subject last year in oil, and wanted to try it in pastel. A departure from my usual approach, with lots of multi-color hatch work to achieve color and tone. 12" x 11".

And as I notice now, I seem to have a lower right corner that needs some pastel!

The Loveless Motel

Perhaps one of the most famous places to eat in Nashville, TN. Remember, those state highway motel motor courts, with all the little separate buildings in a semi-circle, each with a motel room inside? This restaurant remains and serves the best biscuits, preserves, and country ham.

18 x 24 pastels
