"Elkins South Beach" - 11"x13.5" Soft Pastel on Wallis Museum
"Beached" - 11"x17" Soft Pastel on Wallis Museum
I took my 2nd workshop from my favorite artist last weekend - Desmand O'Hagan. I again learned a great deal, from the "master of lost edges and implied detail" - I just love his style, and over the past year I've incorporated much of his style in my own paintings. Granted, this style can not be used with the miniatures I do, but I love using it in larger work.
Many of you know I've recently been creating a lot of glass sculptures, and continue to refine my digital photography skills. So to kick start my soft pastel painting again, I took Desmond's workshop. I'm still tweaking "Elkins South Beach", but it will be finished soon.
Hope you like what you see!
