Pastel, based very loosely on a photo we took in Morocco. This, while not huge (approx. 14" x 12"), is about as big as I've ever worked in pastel. I'm starting to get braver. One of these days I'll try one on a full sheet of Sennelier.
Speaking of pastels, has anyone else out there (besides Casey) tried ordering the Huechroval book? Casey got his, I never got mine, and the Huechroval people are completely incommunicado (as of about six weeks now). I've tried voicemail and several different emails for them. Currently trying to get my money back from our credit card. Very disappointing and odd that they seem to have become a fly-by-night.
Went last night to the opening of Quang Ho's one-man show at the Gallery 1261 in Denver. I'm still reeling from the beauty of seeing his work in person. And I finally got to meet him, though it took a while--the place was packed, and everyone wanted to talk to him.
Lynx, lynx...or owl?
