Another pastel...a semi-abstract coastal view. This is 9" x 12" pastel on pastel paper.

How incredible. I am sitting here looking at this in all orientations (I am sure I look quite mad to anyone looking at me) and loving it. When I look at it with the right side up, I think of a storm over the ocean and the lightning crashing down into the sea. I love paintings that make my imagination go overboard. Nice Job! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

Thanks TeAnne...this is a difficult medium to work with. But it is still fun to try.

It is fun isn't it! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Don't forget to try an eraser and/or sandpaper too! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif I like this, it also has me tilting my head! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Merely a student of life!:)

'The artist is no more than a receptacle for sensations, a brain, a recording apparatus. But if it interferes, if it dares, feeble apparatus that it is, to deliberately intervene in what it should be translating, its own pettiness gets into the picture. The work becomes inferior....

I really like this. Great colors, nice choice of subject, beautiful from all sides (and I did try).

I like this too!
Pastels are hard to work...just go with the flow and experiment...you'll do just fine!

Jacpot I'd say. Museum quality. Superb work. I am going to start ducking -- these pastels are flying at high and dangerous speeds and tend to hit me right between the eyes!!! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

somewhere between star wars and the blue placenta, I think this is good and with a discombobulated orientation (but not confriculated at all)

Jerry...there you go using those BIG words again!! *laugh*.....this is actually an aerial view of a delta ...going into the ocean. Well...my version of it anyway. *snorkle*

I immediately loved the veins of the river feeding the sea... It makes me feel small and lucky to live on this beautifully designed planet.
