This painting is the result of just two pastel classes. The first one was a marsh scene which willl not be seen in this blog! This painting, also the first poppy I've ever painted, was done over a watercolor underpainting on Uart 600 paper.
Am I hooked? Well, I can list many reasons not to be: I don't need another medium to spend a ton of money on; I don't like framing pastels; I don't like getting my hands dirty and I can't do it around my husband for health reasons. BUT . . . I feel something pulling me. MAYBE . . . I'll be a closet pastelist!
