Eggcentric Citrus, Pastel, 8 1/2" x 11 1/2", painted on Wallis sanded paper

This is a favorite painting of mine.  I painted it back in 2010 after a long hiatus from painting still life - I was doing a landscape marathon - lots of landscapes - that lasted two years!  I think what I like most is the unfinished area, it shows the process and what a pastel looks like in the beginning stages.  It was the first time I used my Ludwig darks in a painting, and I found that they really gave the background colors the "punch" I was looking for.
