ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
Soft pastel on pastel paper made in February 2015, taken from a reference photo of a purple vase filled with and surrounded by roses. It’s one of my first attempts at a pastel work. I found building up the colors a bit tedious and very messy, but that’s likely because I haven’t practiced enough with the media yet. Pastels present a lot of potential for showing loose, energetic lines and bright color. I am particularly pleased with the purple vase, and the white glint reflection.
