Resolve It In Photshop

 Evening Reflected
@6" x 5"
Pastel and Photoshop

February 26th.

This one languished on the studio wall for some time.  It had something good, but the composition wasn't right.  Then, I was goofing around in Photoshop, and may have found a direction.  I want to crop it as shown, and add just the suggestion of the roof line.

below is the uncropped version.

This Time of Year

Distant Spring Snow
6" x 8"
Pastel
Casey Klahn


This one isn't new, but it is timely. It snowed every day the past week, including today.  It looked like that WC Fields sketch where the guy throws snow in the door.

New Portfolio Blog


The concept of this new blog is to offer easy access to my current and available medium and large works.  It will be featured as a "Portfolio" page on the tabs at this blog, and at The Colorist.

Podge Hodge

Unnamed, Detail
Large
Pastel

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!

Hodge Podge


I was just organizing files, and these looked like some fun images.  Some have been shared, and some haven't, but they are topical for the late winter.

Did you know that February is post every day month at Pastel Workshop?  This is #18, now. Please come back tomorrow.

Return Here For The Colored Version

Stream With Orange Rushes
WIP - Color Removed
@12" x 6"
Pastel

February 17th.


The idea is to connect the dark foreground masses with high intensity colors.  I like the drawing, and the formal color connections, but not the palette, yet. Please stay tuned.

Sorry for the poor iPh photo - the downside of daily posts for me.

Yesterday I was at the film studio of Mark and Kathleen Secrest, working on a short documentary.  I completely dropped the ball on posting for the dailies!  Sorry @ that, but I can promise you it will happen again some time this month.  I did do some pastel work, so the daily habit of art-making continues unbroken, which is the most important part.

Look for another post later today.
