A Few Mini Pastel Paintings
Today I'd like to share a few of my latest mini pastels. Each one is 2.5 x 3.5 inches on archival pastel paper. Doing these little studies are really helpful when trying to simplify the landscape. These were all timed and took 6 minutes which also makes you simplify. There just isn't enough time to put in too much detail. These little studies are also a great way to work out colors and composition for larger paintings. I am all ready to paint this evening and I am breaking out my new Jimmy Wright set of Great American pastels. They are gorgeous!
These little paintings are available for $20 each. The top one is sold already. Email me at email@example.com if you are interested.
