Finished

Finished pastel

I was visiting with family in Idaho for the last 10 days so there was no delay on finishing this one the beginning of the month.  I had a problem with uploading the final photo before I left on the 9th, so it had to sit until I got back and could try to fix it.  Miracle of miracles, everything is fine now.  

This was hard from the standpoint of the fence in front.  The space in between the verticals was really too small for a great deal of pastel work, so I put down a base layer with some watercolors.  It turned out to be a good way to handle it.  

Then the photos showed a little bit of a discrepancy on the green board and batten on the second floor.  Some photos showed it to be more of a yellow green and in others, it was more teal green.  I made it more teal as that was the most common in the pics.  I asked for verification of the color and she said it was more yellow.  What to do.  I put a light layer of yellow colored pencil over it and when I took it in, she said it was perfect  What a relief.

      Thanks, Denise. These are always fun to do. I like variety. When it starts to feel that I don’t know what to do next, I try to change gears and keep myself fresh. Of course I never know what a commission will bring. I am rarely disappointed with a subject.
