I got a day behind because of inclement weather and I wasn't able to go to the studio yesterday. I'll catch up soon.
I've been intrigued lately by abstract and expressionistic style paintings. I found the work of Debora L. Stewart which I love and then discovered she has books and dvd's available. I bought her video, Abstract Painting Techniques: Flowers in Pastel, yesterday and watched it twice. Very excellent video and quite inspiring.
So off to the studio today to see if I could turn that inspiration into something I liked. I happen to be in an Facebook group with Debora centered around abstracts in pastels. I shared "Willowy" and she replied "beautiful". I'm happy with the painting and I'm super pleased she liked it.
I will be exploring abstracts in pastel for the remainder of the 30 day challenge....and maybe beyond.
