Today I used a pastel to untangle some problems I was having with an oil painting. I’d started with a plein air painting of tulips from three years ago. Rather that paint back into the older painting, I decided to create a new one based on what I liked about it.
Abstract Landscape Pastel ~ Rite of Spring
I liked the tulips, but not the palette. So I was referring to another painting for my palette. I was also changing the design from a square to a horizontal rectangle.
I jumped in and blocked it in. A week later I was stymied.
