View Full Version : after many years' hiatus...

I have just started playing with pastels again. This is probably pretty rough, but please tell me whether it works or not & what I may be doing wrong!
This is an old conquistador's helmet that is up at the gallery that represents me. One day I was hanging out with the owner in her upstairs studio, and when I saw it, I knew I had to paint it. The lemons were lying around from a still life class, so I figured, what the heck...

Please tell me what you think.

Nice work!
You may wish to ask yourself this question:
Do I mind if my viewers see my work and wonder WHAT IS THAT?
Now, if that doesn't bother you, no problem. It's good to keep in mind that you may not always be standing by your viewers to explain exactly what something is, as in:
"That's a conquistador's helmet."
