White roses squared

White-rose-squared

 

Today I finished the study of white roses.  If I keep working on it, I’m afraid I’ll ruin it.  The surface is about as saturated with pastels as it can stand. Working on heavy weight sketchpad paper worked out better than I’d hoped.  I liked using the white of the paper against the coverage of hues and values you can get with pastels.

When I consulted with my studio neighbor, Rick Stoner, about framing this, he pulled two shrink wrapped square (18″ x 18″) gallery wrapped canvas, and gave them to me.
