6x12 pastel on art spectrum suede
In New England late August is considered early fall, June is late spring so summer consist of July. All the rest of the months we call winter.
I read a post by Richard McKinley. He did a drawing to establish values and then coated it with clear gesso. I thought I would give it a tr,y unfortunately I did my drawing with pastel pencils and the gesso dissolved most of it. When the gesso dried it left ridges so I sanded it down. I liked doing the pastel with the structure underneath.
