Southern IA Landscape

Size: 4"x6"~ Soft Pastel on Wallis Pastel Paper
I'm beginning to like the Wallis paper for creating pastel paintings. (It really does feel like sand paper) I like the way it holds the pastel and I'm not spraying fixitive on these small art pieces. I've been really shaking them and banging them back and forth on the inside of my trash can to shake off the access pastel dust. Amazing how little comes off after such violent shaking. I figure, they'll hold up to all the moving around I do going to outside art shows. I've been creating small 4"x6" pastel paintings all week while in Bentonsport, IA. Some leave my easel and find new owners before I get the chance to record them with my digital camera.
