4 Pears in Pastel

I’ve always loved the shapes of pears.  These were done using Unison and Ludgwig pastels on Strathmore.  Live size: 5.5 X 8.5.    Enjoy!

Midwest Farm

This is the smallest landscape that I’ve completed in pastel (5.5 X8.5),  but the size didn’t stop it from being voted First Place in Lakewood Artist Guild’s September meeting last night.  Although I have received ribbons from paintings that I entered in our Spring and Fall shows with professional judges, there was something really great getting the votes from my fellow guild members!

Back to Dogs…

Don’t you just love them?  Although we own two Shih Tzus, this happens to be a Bearded Collie (Beardie) done on 9 X 12 Wallis Sanded Board using various soft pastels.   Enjoy!

Golden Fields in Pastel

Seems like we should be thinking of fall (my favorite season) about now even though we’re in the 90′s in SoCal.  This painting was completed on an 11 X 14 Strathmore Bristol Vellum using primarily Terry Ludwig, and Unisons.  I love the deep color of these products and their softness.  Not so good for small details, but great for landscapes.  Enjoy!
