This was a fun painting to work on. I painted a Gessobord panel with Gamblin Fastmatte Alkyd paint which was a lovely orange color. Then I painted on Golden Ground for Pastels. A few gestural lines with black charcoal and then have fun applying the pastels. The ground gave such a great texture.

Wow, Cynthia! Super cool. Fabulous texture. I think this is one of my favorite pieces of yours. And I love so many!
