la vie en rose

by | Feb 26, 2007 | Art

Eric was playing this song while I was finishing up my latest painting and the name stuck. Translated to mean, “life in pink.” This one is fairly large, 16 x 20 inches.

My normal technique involves a lot of blending. This unfinished painting had been up on the wall of my studio for a while and I needed to finish it but I didn’t like the way it was going. So I just started scribbling on some color and blended with other pastels sticks instead of my fingers. The result is a lively piece that I am very happy with.

I added the black outlines last to give it a more illustrative look.
