|'I Remember the Time' 9x12 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
Today I decided to use my notes and paint another variation of the painting. I used a different type of paper and a different set of pastels. I discovered that the second time with this subject I eliminated even more than the first time. I kept only the details that were important to me.....the peek of blue in a moody sky and the golden grasses.
Below you can see my sketches and notes. I used a 9x2 piece of gray Colourfix paper with a dry block in. I don't usually use Colourfix but I had an old pack and the gray color was perfect.
