Laundry Day

For IF's Sail:

This piece is pastel on paper. I found working in pastel on such a tiny figure a bit tricky. It makes me have new respect for the artists who can make pastel look like paint, namely, the intrepid Rosalba Carriera and Mary Cassatt. I'll probably try this again as a big sky painting.

I just did a similar image for a poster I designed this week, but not nearly as nice as your's, okay it's nothing like your's, but it did involved a clothesline, love the pastels.
