Mowry Study

pastel 9 x 11 1/2

Came across a study of an Elizabeth
Mowry painting I did from her book
when I first started to study pastel.
Pastel is considered by some as drawing,
but it is actually considered painting,
only with the dry medium of chalk.
Opposite technique is used in pastel
as from watercolor; darks are applied
first and lighter values are layered
on to develope a form or texture.
