Share a Past Project Thursday
This is a pastel drawing I did a few years ago in an art class.
24" X 31".
The quantity of time and the amount of work I put into this was insane. First we had to make a collage of organic shapes using magazine and newspaper pages.
Then we had to recreate our paper collages in pastel. Holy crap. I wish you could see the detail I had to capture. Overall, I am pretty pleased with the product.
It was very difficult for me, and tedious. I had the paper taped to a door and newspaper laid out on the floor to capture all the chalk dust. I decided, after all that work, instead of just having the thing collect dust in storage, I went ahead and had it framed. Shoot, why not hang my own art on the wall? I need to get a better photograph of it. My current quilting teacher photographs her work, then copies these pics of her own stuff onto fabric. She then incorporates these images into new work. I really like that idea.
