Experimental Works

Italian Building Sketch
Casey Klahn
I did a number of these buildings based on some photos and some imagination.
This one is really as much about new pastel sticks as anything else.

Fence Remnant, Springtime
Casey Klahn
I was looking at this scene next to my barn last week, and imagining doing another pastel.  Seeing this older work, I think it's much better than what I was visualizing last week.  Weird.

These are a couple of experimental works I did last year that haven't been published at The Colorist before.  They are about 6 or 8 inches by, if I remember right.

both beautiful. I especially like the structure

Thank you, Celeste.

I love the intense colours in the building and the contrast that spells twilight in the second has me peering into the shadows to see what's there.

Sonya Johnson said...

Love 'em both, Casey. The first is so bold and cheerful, and the second is more contemplative.

I always associate your pastels with intense, exciting color. The building sketch does not disappoint.
