Cherries in Silver Gravy Boat
I thought I would throw in a pastel painting today. For those of you who are not familiar, pastels are sticks of pigment that are held together with a binder. They are similar to chalk but almost pure pigment. They have a velvet like texture and are a lot of fun to use. It's is totally different from painting in oils, but variety feeds the inspirational spirit.
You can see from the edges that I painted this on tinted paper and let bits of the paper show through around the painting. Cherries are always a fun subject matter and, of course, the silver reflections kept me engaged. Had a great time painting this one. Hope you enjoy.
Have a wonderful week!
