At The Station

12x16 on Canson pastel paper. On the textured side. Nupastels and Mungyo hand rolled soft pastels. I prefer sandpaper to pastel paper but I have a bunch of paper to use up. I just got a set of 60 Mungyo hand rolled softs and really like them. I think for the money they are really quite good. Comments welcomed. Thanks for looking.

You are putting the paper to good use. I like that this painting is not only well done, but tells a story.

I agree with Karen. There's a wonderful feeling for narrative in this image. Was your source just imagination?

Thanks John. It was from an old postcard my wife found while cleaning out her father's house.

Re: At The Station

Well, though it may be from a vintage photo, I find the use of color really helps to tell the story. The red violet used on the woman's clothes blends in with her surroundings and makes her stand out just enough to make her the main character. The earthy and neutral tones on the other characters cause them to be secondary. It's well thought out.
