I couldn't paint before work today, I was just too slow moving. In the evening I tried a still life of a pear and it just didn't work out. I decided I was just too tired. Then I remembered my Crazy 8s!
Terry Ludwig Pastels has a sale once a year of broken, imperfect, discontinued pastels. The sale started Sunday and I bought two sets. They arrived today. I don't usually do still lifes in pastel but when nothing is working - try something different.
I used all but one of the pastels that came in these little sets and it was fun. I think I will be doing more pastel still lifes.
