I'm sorry I've been very remiss about posting lately. I've got caught up in doing a larger painting, which is taking time to do as I'm very busy with work. I've been reading 'Color' by Betty Edwards. What a great book! I'm going to try and do all the exercises in the book as there's so much I need to know... This is a quite recent pastel painting (horrible of D I know - he looks like a layabout - which he isnt!) There are a few bits I like about this painting - I went a bit mad with the colour, which I'm pleased with, although I havent seemed to be able to get into that 'mode' since. It was also a breakthrough with using Wallis paper - which I had found difficult before. I did a colourful underpainting on this, and for the first time really enjoyed using the paper.
