Blue Cloud Landscape

Pastel on Black Canson Pastel Paper, (9"' x 6")

I did this drawing as an example for the students in my
"Painterly Pastel" class at the Art League School in Alexandria,
Virginia, where I teach. This is a really fun way of working.
When people first hear black paper, their ususal reaction is
"yech", black velvet!! Elvis, tacky horses, farm scenes!!  But, it
is actually a very beautiful medium, because it makes the colors
glow.  This is a very loose interpretation of a landscape, but I do
love the blue cloud.
