Podge Hodge

Unnamed, Detail
Large
Pastel
Casey Klahn
February 19th.

I worked at resolving several large works today, and started a small landscape.  Could this piece be any more strangely titled?  This represents about a quarter of the sheet, but the photo isn't good, so I'll let you see this detail of it.  

See you tomorrow!

It's a beautiful detail. Jewel-like.
I look forward to seeing the whole painting. This piece has a mosaic feel to it and I thought Christmas lights.

Thank you for looking and commenting, Linda.

I envy the way pastelists see color. I have always had a difficult time using color. Suggestions?

Vivian - thanks for commenting. I hope that my next series of workshops will be on color. I'm writing the program for that now.

Maybe I will also teach it online. Please stay tuned.

One hint: use a different green for the foreground and the background. They have to push forward or backward, and uniform colors in each ground (fore - mid- back)are flat.
