Red Rubies - Abstracted Pastel

"Red Rubies"
8 x 8" pastel on paper
Purchase Painting

A few days off and back in the studio today.

This started off as a piece of Stonehenge paper, used mostly for colored pencil work. I have a ton of it and I wanted to use what I had on hand. So I taped the paper down to a board and applied a 50/50 mixture of Golden Acrylic Ground for Pastels and water. I let it dry thoroughly and then applied the pastel over the ground. The pastels adhere beautifully.
