Exquisite! I just love the colour and the intensity!
LOVE AND PEACE, jen
Thanks Jen, this was my first major attempt at pastels and I chose them for that very reason……….their vivid colour and intensity :)
How modest of you to refer to this as an “attempt” … it is actually a masterpiece.
this is sooo beautiful!
Pardon me while I pick my chin (all of them) off the floor.. WOW! is all I can utter.. fantastic work!! And thanks so much for the comment which allowed me to find you..
Very well done, my congratulations on this pastel, it lives.
just incredible work , top prize
Beautiful, just beautiful, heartco! The play of light through the leaves and petals is superb!
I love this, it is better than real!
Absolutely incredible! I’m a pastel painter, and I’m not sure how you achieved this! Wow!
Thanx Alice. Im not sure either! I used a full sheet of blue colourfix pastel paper. I work on the flat, not on an easel. I don’t do all over layers, rather I work from one end to another, or one corner to another. A technique I use with my pencil work and I just tried it with pastels this time. I love the intensity of colour in pastels.
I really love this, especially the light you have coming through the petals. This is really food for my eyes, and it’s delicious!
