Working on variations of an unfinished pastel:
Despite appearances the much modified print at left is the larger of the two, at 18″x12″. The print at right is only 11″x8.5″. I printed the smaller size accidentally due to a glitch somewhere in my Epson printer software, which sometimes fails to update both paper size and a separate setting for print size same as paper size!).
In both cases I printed my unfinished pastel drawing on a special Epson watercolor paper for inkjet, then worked further to make each a completed piece. The larger one on left, with the pink, is all pastel over the archival inkjet print. The smaller one has both colored pencil and a touch of pastel over the inkjet base.
The larger piece retains the softness of the original concept, with much more refinement and additional colors and shades. The pink evokes early morning or late evening light in the far north.
The smaller piece is darker, and has greater sharpness and detail. The blues are more predominant for a very different mood: perhaps early morning at a different time of year.
I hope to visit both of these in my dreams 🙂
