2 views of "Room With A View", 9x12 and 12 x16 pastel
These are both from a photo sent to me by a friend studying Italian in Italy. So the reference photo is a tiny little thing. I did the top one last night for a demo at Chemers Gallery. I did my usual under painting using colors that are similar to what I saw the finished color to be. I then applied pastel for a quick painting. Today I decided to do it again using a much bolder under painting to use to control temperature and undertones. I also changed the composition and zoomed in. I had fun with all the color and am still figuring out how I feel about the outcome.
