New Path

I've been spending some time over the last few weeks concentrating less on characters and more on environment. This has led to experimenting with color (inspired by the amazing Peter Ferguson) and materials and techniques (taking pointers from one of my favorite pastel artists, Gary Kelley). This is one piece from those explorations. I am liking the intensity of color and strong contrasts I can get with the new pastels I am using.

I love this piece! The softness and the colors are amazing. Gary Kelley is also one of my favorite artists- he is from Cedar Falls, IA just a few hours from me. I met him in high school when he came to talk to students about his work and he presented a first place award to me for an illustration competition that was held through our art center. Very inspiring!
