We arrived in Florida last week and I had this pastel painting I did last year hanging on my bedroom wall. I did this in Florence's class and am looking to getting started with her this year. I believe I captured the shininess of the bells and the texture of the leather strap. Here's a close-up.
I think I'll bounce back and forth with both oil and pastel for a while. I do need new photographs and may try my hand at plein aire?
