Pastel Demo Painting

Against my better judgment I was talked into doing a pastel demo at the Central Texas Pastel Society booth at the Georgetown Market Days last Saturday. Surprisingly it went pretty well despite how rusty I was with pastels. I posted the resulting painting on Daily Paintworks today and was thrilled to have them make it one of their Facebook Picks for today. Guess it's good to step outside the comfort zone once in a while. I used my new easel which I had just bought from Joshua Been when we stopped and visited him at his wonderful gallery in Salida on our way home from camping in Colorado. Even though it wasn't designed for pastels, it did a superb job for me. I loved it. Can't wait to use it as it was designed for my oils.
