Two New Abstract Pastels
These are two abstract pastels that I have just done. They both have very textured underpaintings that were thrilling to paint on. I plan to explore further textures in my underpaintings in the near future; this was my first foray into doing it, and I found it fascinating.
The one above is 8″ x 8″ and is titled From the Treehouse; prints of it can be obtained here. The one below is 12″x16″ and is titled Brittle Enthusiasm. Prints of that one can be purchased here.
I love both color and texture, and there is more contemplative effort put into these than you might realize!
