A commission project

I have been working on this commission project given by PatronArt. It is nearly finished. This is the largest pastel drawing I have ever produced: 48" x 32". I had fun with it. Now I need to figure out how to ship this giant...


A little experiment in pastel

I tried a pastel drawing on muslin mounted on gesso board just to see how this surface would take the medium. It was easier than I had expected. This study is 6" x 6". I think I can work big next time.


Vanitas 6 Update (08-07-2016)

Well, the figure part of this drawing (22" x 15") is almost finished. The hand and arm still need a little more work. I am not 100% sure about what to do with the background though... Should I just leave it blank just as it is??? I need to think.



Vanitas 6 started

For these few days I have been working on this new pastel drawing: Vanitas 6. From Vanitas 1 through 5, they were all black and white graphite drawings, so I wanted to add some colors to my work this time. This is still work in progress, but it is moving much much faster than super detailed graphite drawings naturally. I am working on black Canson paper.
