New School Color - Casey Klahn
Yep, this painting looked pretty good in the OOF photo, but it looks *great* in this one. I don't know why it is that I love seeing the underlying paper surface peeking through on other pastelist's paintings, but don't care for it much on my own work. But, that's one of the things you notice in this photo that was lost in the earlier one.
Can't find the previous post you mentioned; what's the date? As a frequent taker of lousy photos, I'd like to see what you call "poor". This one seems terrific.
Sam - lucky you! I haven't changed the image at pastelsblog.blogspot, yet. It was taken by myself, with Lorie's spiffy D80. Shows you what a piker I am, and how great she is at photography.http://pastelsblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/neutrals-in-field.html
Hi, Sonya! The trick to the under ground showing is for it to be an addition to the composition.And, also a matter of style. Yours is so good!
Don't feel bad, Casey. You and Lorie are both very good at what you each do. When she paints a pastel, you can take a picture of it. Then you'll be even. :0)
I can't believe this is only 5.5 x 5...it looks like a big big painting. I love all the unusual colors. What beauty!
Sam: heh, heh.Celeste: Thank you about the colors. It is interesting how this works. My belief is that SMALL paintings need large, clear shapes, and that LARGE paintings need: large, clear shapes.
This is sublime....
I, too, thought this was a large painting, not a tiny! Simply exquisite colors. I found your thoughts on limited subject matter thought provoking!
Thanks, Shirley. I joined your site.
This is so beautiful.
