Re: 2010 Pastel Retrospective

Paula,
Great thread! I see many of my favorite artists have already posted. I'm getting around to it, finally, in October of 2011.

I liked the truck because it reminds me of a great plein air painting trip to New England. This old guy rests at peace in a garage near Manchester.



This painting is my 2nd favorite because I like to paint with intense hues with strong, contrasting colors. Not everything in life is "earth tone".

Re: 2010 Pastel Retrospective

Amazing work everybody!!!

Elijah, pastel pencils on Fabriano. I have worked and struggled so much on this portrait and I got good feedback on what I thought it was a bad work, that I have real loving feelings to this work.





And the rose. As I was working with the paste pencils I was discovering this addictive medium and feeling a kind of energy .... it was a pleassure and a struggle ( always) to do it.



Saludos

Luicre

Re: 2010 Pastel Retrospective

Oops! I made a mistake! I was in a hurry and I thought it was 2011 retrospective `s thread! ....Or I thought that last year was 2010.....aging it`s not easy......


Plase Deirdre, those works are from 2011, I think they should deleted and I will repost them when you open the 2011 `s thread.

Sorry.....


Luicre

No problem Luicre...the new one will be up soon!
