I have embarked on a new approach to painting. This is the first in a series of small pastels, working in soft pastels on paper in three sizes: 8” x 10-5/8”, 6” x 8” and 5” x 7”. (Occasionally I might do a larger size.) I've made my own surfaces so this is new to me as well. My approach is to restrict my need to do detail and encourage fluidity and simplification of subject matter. I'm starting with the general and working my way back to the specific. I'm enjoying this process and can't wait for the surprises each new day will bring.
