"End of Glorious Day", Pastel

"End of Glorious Day", Pastel
11 x 14" on Pastelbord.

This is one of my latests yet - early works. One more painting what I started a while ago
(almost 3 years), hated much about it and finally decided to do some restoration and repaint
all I do not like. Therefore... I left mostly untouched my keep part (what was a sky) 
and scratched  foreground  and some mid-ground off with bristle brush.
What You see here is completely new work with elements of old one...
Not the easiest way to do things, but I hope at the end it was worth it.
I like it much better now.
This is also my very first painting I finished on my new studio easel.
I got that one used from one of my horse-loving friends and promised to her
to put it in good use... I love it.

... and just to compare - original photo of the same art work,
how it used to look like few years ago...

"Pas de trois", Oil Pastel, WIP.

 "Pas de trois" , 10 x 8", Oil Pastel.
Mounted U-art 280.

 I did this painting free-handed, no precise drawing whatsoever in 
Caran D'Ache Supracolor pencils.

 I worked by sections turning pencil drawing into watercolor wash.

 Above - finished underpainting with some hint of  Oil Pastel.

 Above - finished Oil Pastel blocking.

And finished painting of course.
A bit different for me - I had plenty of fun with background
on this one and usually background is the part I mostly neglect.

"Corn Shocks", pastel, 8x10"

Latest small pastel study of corn field.
Can not do much with the fact I always adore those stacks of corn
and always wanted to paint those... Friend of mine finally provided me
with great photo I used for this small painting as a reference...
Thanks, Karen, it was great! I'm glad You like what I did here...
