A Very Old One

This is a very old pastel painting that I made well before university, sometime in 2001.
Actually, I'm not sure I still like it, but I think I do. Has quite a few faults.
Both of these are detail shots only. The entire one is 50 by 70 cms, and I made it on a deep red sheet of paper, that is what shows thru. I painted it on the floor. My then-boyfriend made photos of my progress. One day I might post those, too, 'cause I think they are funny.

Priya drew my attention to the fact that lately I haven't posted artworks of mine. Yeah, true. I haven't worked very much lately. But I'm sure that sooner or later I'll get back to making artworks (other than graphic design). Actually, this is a kind of a moral obligation of mine, as one of my teachers worded it. I dunno. Maybe it is. Well, if that's what I'm meant to do, then I'd better do it. I really don't know why I've been so lazy nowadays, but to be honest, I don't want to beat myself up about is. Still, I hope I'll soon get my act together.

your drawing are so great, I hope you can get back the mood to draw again :D I'm sure you will! I love to draw too, but since I'm a moody person my mood is on and off, mostly off, but there will always be an on time :D

This is very beautiful! You are very talented. Was it hard to do with the square-ish strokes?

agnes szucs said...

Jane, thank you very much! I'm flattered!
It was not hard to do, as soft pastel sticks actually lend themselves to these squarish strokes.

Your art is amazing! I felt the same way too. I had my idle brush and I finally used it a couple of months ago. It felt good to draw and sketch again. Hoping to see more of your artwork :)
