Orange Slices - 9" x 12" Pastel


Painting with my friend Nancy was so much fun today...we painted a simple still life with some mellow jazz playing, and then Nancy, who is an amazing cook, made homemade minestrone, bread, and flan for lunch. It really doesn't get better than this.

Really nice sense of light in this one. Love the broken color in the areas outside the center of interest.

Wow, this is fine. You captured this delicate light key so well. The strokes are fun and the translucency really comes through on those slices. Amazing!

Your pastel work is very skilled. These oranges are so luminous! You're giving me a yearning for my soft pastels, which I haven't used in some time.
