The Diva is Done....

After a fun day with our granddaughter, Emma, it was time to face the music and finish up this painting.  I had the basic structure but needed to add lights and specifics to give it depth.

Thursday morning
Facing the music!
"The Diva"
6 x 6 Pastel on Sanded Paper
As I have mentioned before, I love drama in my still life paintings, but not in my life.  Doesn't this strawberry look like she's about to sing the aria in an opera?

I've painted this strawberry resource in oil before but I am teaching a big pastel class in Rising Sun, IN in November and I'm trying out different resource pictures to see what I might have my students work from.  It's not going to be this one!

Hello Cynthia, I just adore your pastel paintings, and especially this strawberry!! I just melted when I saw it. I love that you show your work in progress too, since I don't know much about pastel, it's very interesting to see, and inspires me to want to learn more. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.
