|What are you looking at????|
Today was a windy day, although not to cold. I had been thinking about getting back to the chickens I have been working on so...... I stretched a sheet of Canson MiTientes pastel paper, in a medium color- - - - Sand - - -and put a smaller drawing of the rooster on it. I had wanted to try a Gouache painting, and thought this was a good subject for that. I decided a looser background would work best, that would allow me to put the rooster in more detail - - -although not a lot of detail. And I wanted to include his shadow, and I really wanted to see how it would all look on the MiTientes paper. I have done this once before and really enjoyed it. Sometimes I just want to paint!! Although pastel is truly my favorite medium. I still plan to attend the watercolor workshop I mentioned in an earlier post. AND guess what???? I am going to a Bill Cone workshop in Sierra City, Ca later this year. I love his work--_he is amazing to say the very least!!! His "Pastel and natural light " workshop promises to be a wonderful thing!!! To see his work, try BillCone.blogspot.com or google his name.
