This is one of the largest pastels I've done. I painted this on a full sheet of Canson, and it was done about 17 years ago. Another very old painting. What I liked about this were the cast shadows on the petals. I don't work this large anymore. Working this size is fun though, so I'm sure I'll paint something this large again, I'll just have to come up with a good subject!
