The demo at South Union Gallery was a great deal of fun! I found it really challenging to paint and talk at the same time. It was also fun to hear the reactions from those who know me as a colored pencil artist. From "I didn't have any idea you did pastels!" to "That's colored pencil?"
I made a bit of progress, but I'm still not convinced about the violet blue cloth. I'm considering changing it....I've thought about a deep rust or green. And the dish is driving me absolutely crazy. I will figure it out though.
I also want to pull the shadows forward on this to help with my focal point (left pear).
