|'Poppy Happiness' 2.5 x 3.5 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
I decided to paint with my pastels today so I took my small Plein Air bag up to the Lido deck and found a nice lounger in the sun. To set up for painting I put down a small piece of vinyl tablecloth to protect the chair from any pastel dust. I opened up my box of pastels and took out my small foamcore support board and taped down my 2.5 x 3.5 paper. I also took out my small bag of baby wipes so I can keep clean.
I brought some reference photos to use but I decided to work on a series of poppy paintings. I had fun with composition and color on these little ones! It was a great day to be painting outside.
** I am trying to post a photo of my set up but I am having technical difficulties. I can't complain about the satellite internet service but I will have to try tomorrow to post more photos. I'm late for dinner!
