1200 Pound Explosion - Pastel - sold

16 x 20 inches, pastel on board.  Im trying to get a series of rodeo paintings done before rodeo season arrives and along with that many visitors and tourists.  These rodeo scenes using an abstract type painting method have been recieved positively by many, so I thought I would continue along these lines and see what happens.  I do enjoy this method of painting very much.  For it allows me to use my imagination more, and not be so concerned with making things look too "real".  More artistic freedom, I suppose.

Good and Hot - pastel - sold

5 x7 pastel on paper.  A fun, small piece that I did for one of the monthly challenges in wet canvas.  Used mostly the Maggie Price basic value set from Terrry Ludwing pastels.  Great set of pastels to use for quick set up, and a smaller pallet that has wide value ranges.  And the Ludwig pastels are just plain fantastic to use.  I did use ref photo, but also got out an actual bottle of Tobasca and set it up to see how it looked in real life.
