University classes are just about done but, just across the river, students in my pastel class are still in high-gear, clearly in no hurry to have this series of classes end. Here is a practice pastel worked up in the studio class after some sketches made not long ago. In the ever-expanding armory of art supplies, NuPastels have been joined now by Sennelier half-stick pastels in 120 colors. This is a messier medium than watercolor, for sure, and a whole lot more “forgiving.” It is just about as different as it could be, in fact. But, how do people go “urban sketching” –especially if traveling abroad–with such an array of tools–hard and soft pastels, paper of all kinds, etc? More “problems” to solve! 🙂
One thought on “Urban Sketching in Pastel”
painting on location is very challenging in public.
