5x7 Gireault pastel on ampersand astelboard
This started out fine with a pastel underpainting that I alcohol washed but I lost control about half way through. It was almost a wiper but my husband said to wait. My friend Barbara always tells me that I wipe too soon so I will sit on this a while. It was almost a relief to be able to say "OK, I painted but I don't expect them all to come out good"
A water color teacher in college said "Paint one painting a week, at the end of a year you will have 52 paintings and if you have two good ones, you have two good ones"
What is different:
- This was done with Gireault pastels on ampersand board
- The Ampersand is a nice surface but does not hold many layers of pastels.
- Gireault are still my favorite. When I separated them from the rest I realized that while some were hardly used, quite a few are almost too small to use.
- I would like to adjust the composition a little but this board will not take any more layers.
