Re: Flamboyant !

It is completely different from what I am used to see of pastel drawings.
When I think pastel, I see more detailed images. But I like this!
It is truly a mixture between water colors and pastel.
I'd like to see more drawings like this .

The texture in the tree trunk really makes it stand out! The color harmony adds to the beauty of your always-outstanding work!

Re: Flamboyant !

Seriously, you might be my favorite ever pastel artist. This in no way diminishes the wonderful work on this site. Each of your paintings totally draws me in and you have such a wonderful, and unique voice. What a treat for the eyes.

Re: Flamboyant !

As soon as this page opened, I knew you'd posted another painting,Shireesh! You have such a captivating style, and say the most with the fewest possible strokes. On this one, I particularly admire how you render the shadowed tree in saturated color, and indicate the bright sunlight with desaturated colors.

Did you take photos as you progressed? I'd love to see a work in progress of this piece!

Best, Evelyn

BlackScorpion,Don,Donna,Davkin,Barbara,Mamalynn,Ma rcus,Still-trying,Blayne, Pam, Evelyn :
Thank you all very much for the appreciation and kind words !
Evelyn, I'm sorry, but I did not take photos of the work in progress. One thing I can say- I worked out a rough sketch with a desktop painting first ; and then got on with the pastel. I'm attaching the digital sketch.

Re: Flamboyant !

Your digital sketch is quite detailed, Shireesh, and very pastel-like. Fascinating!

Best, Evelyn
