Re-do of "Loose Ends" 6" X 6" Pastel
You may remember awhile back I posted a new pastel titled "Loose Ends." Well, it's been sitting on my shelf where I keep my unframed art, and I've been able to "look" at it for several weeks. I thought today I might change a few things about it to kind of "freshen it up."
I defined the stems a bit more and used a few more warm greens. I also modified the background color to a cooler color, kind of a light turquoise. The shadows had to be changed as they had been drawn with a deep-valued gold color to go with the yellow background. Now, they have a deeper turquoise tint.
Lastly, I added highlights (I had forgotten them completely the first time (Duh!) in a cool, pinkish red. Below, is the original post. I like the updated version better, but in all honesty, how do YOU feel? Your feedback is always welcome!
