Photography credit - me!
This artist was busily creating lovely colour and texture with his pastels this afternoon in Forsythe Park.
It is too damned cold to be painting today, yet the park was full of artists...watercolourist having their pieces blown dry much too fast to allow a decent wash to glaze properly, oil painters patiently picking the bits of dust and leaves that were blowing onto their freshly-laid pigment, and a couple of pastel artists forging ahead in the face of this blustery day.
This artist stopped and talked with me for over an hour, explaining why he loves pastels and why he'll never use another medium, he's so hooked on the pastel world of Schmincke, Rembrandt, Sennelier, Daler Rowney...he might have me convinced to have a go with pastels.
Then, back to his palette, on with his creation...
What a good way to spend an afternoon in Savannah!
