I love the composition on this one Connie and the almost understated colours. It all works so well. Haven't tried using pastelbord. What is it?

looked in again and love your work, I think I enjoy painting human figures the best of all. Wish I could capture the movement and atmosphere that you manage to achieve in yours. Very inspiring!

Beautiful piece. The somber mood really speaks through the colors you chose and composition.

Thanks so much, H.J. - I appreciate your nice comment!

Thank you, Sheila! Pastelbord is a gritty surfaced board made by Ampersand. It really does hold the pastel - either soft or oil. It's great!

Connie said...

Hi Carolann - and thank you! I agree with you about painting the figure - very pleasant to do.
