Hi folks,

Thought I'd share this one. I painted this from a set up I did and then photographed. Various pastels and pastel pencil. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. I had a hard time knowing when to stop. Ever happen to you?http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/28-Mar-2013/1174506-bowls.jpg

Wow! I thought this was the reference picture and scrolled down looking for the pastel. What color did you use for background? Is it straight black or other colors? Pam

I like it for the same reasons Chewie mentions... simplicity!

Thank you. This was an exercise in technique for me in blending colors. I used mostly black for the background but it fades into a dark blue toward the bottom which the picture doesn't show.

Beautiful work. I too thought it was a photo! The blue bowl is divine :)
