Sunflower Soup II
Sunflower Soup II, 12 x 16, soft pastel on paper SOLD
Finally finished it. This one got stalled at the "ugly stage," and then I had an exceptionally busy week at work and left it sitting even longer. I wish I had a better approach to surmounting that no-apparent-hope-for-it phase of a painting. My current approach is to just pick up a pastel and start doing something--anything--until it starts looking decent again. It nearly always ends up working . . . but I always get stopped for a while.
The yellows appear to have desaturated on upload. Picture them a bit richer than they look here!
