"Reflections" in Monday's Drawing Class


Reflections
14" x 10"
Pastel

Bob brought in a lovely Delft blue and white bowl and some fresh lemons and oranges. Judith brought in a remnant from her granite countertop that reflects nicely. The setup was very appealing. However, I am always amazed that I have 98 different sticks of pastel, and I can't find a true lemon yellow. Layering colors filled the bill.

I wish everyone a happy holiday season!

Thanks for the friendship and have a festive holiday and New Year!
