Lily Pads

"Lily Pads"
12 x 12 inches
Pastel on archival paper mounted on board

This is a pastel that I started late this summer. I finally decided to try to finish it up. Many of the pastels used in this pastel painting are ones that I made by hand. I have been working on making a better selection of dark tones.

This past week I gave my first drawing class at the Cambridge Center of the Arts. What fun! For this initial class, I went over the various pastel surfaces and different types of pastel. Since this is the very first class at our local Art Center, we started with a basic drawing class using conte and paper. They did a great job!
