A 9x12 pastel of Fourth Avenue near Carroll Street in Brooklyn. I have been changing my approach to pastels, trying to use them in layers, keeping them loose and allowing the layers to show, building up as in an oil painting using fixative to simulate drying, sort of the way I imagine Degas worked.
Yesterday marked my fourth year with this blog. I wish I had time to improve the blog, but I would rather paint. At least the paintings have improved.
