Strawberries and Snow Peas

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but here is a piece I finished last week. Using a reference photo I worked on it from time to time over the course of a year, about 40 hours total.
I used a mixture of oil pastels (Pentel, LOEW-CORNELL, and Cray-pas) on Canson pastel paper. Size of the work is 8"x 11.5"

Wow, that's very impressive! I can almost feel those cinder blocks in the foreground. Beautiful!

So impressive, and really worth the time you put into it. Your detail with the highlights is just exquisite! I love the texture in the bricks along the bottom.

You did a fine job - hope you post more work soon!
