Ely when he was 2 years old - pastel

I finished this painting in January, but I planned to give it to Caryn (Ely's mom) for her birthday in June, so it is getting to my blog now. I was working hard on capturing Ely's mischievous smile and I think I got it right. I wish I used better pastel paper, but it is lesson learned for next time.

Abstract Pastel 1

When I finished my last pastel, which had a lot of detail, I decided to paint an abstract painting. I took inspiration from a realistic picture of a sunset, because I liked the colors and went wild. I really enjoyed the process and I am quite happy with the final result.

Drawing of my friend Eva

Eva, thank you for sitting for me.
I find it much harder to draw people I know. This was a challenge!

This is today's drawing from Ray's class. Alison was much prettier, but the drawing does resemble her. This was the last class this quarter.
