On The Cheap

Sometimes using cheap paper is more fun! It takes the pressure off, and gives you the freedom to play. I was down to the last piece of pink paper in my "art paper" folder, and normally I hesitate to use this kind because it is so heavy and scratchy. It turned out to be perfect for soft pastels though, and what was going to be an experiment in color turned into an extremely satisfying painting session.

Here's the result:
"Everglades Afternoon"
9 x 12 Pastel on Paper
