So, here they are. I have now finished two Nashville streetscapes in different materials. I have decided to put them up together so that they can be compared directly. For sure, they are totally different. The watercolor is a bit more ethereal than the pastel. The pastel has more depth and richness of color.
I can’t really say which one I prefer. They actually took about the same amount of working time, although the pastel was probably slightly longer. Everyone is always amazed that I can put in the color much more quickly than I can lay in the ink. What I’d like is an opinion of which one you think is more successful. I’ll be happy to listen to any and all thoughts. When I look at them here in the studio, I can’t decide.
