Occasional thoughts,reminiscences and ideas from the artist Darrell Baschak

Spent the greater part of yesterday and today in the studio. Some of the time was spent preparing paper for some drawings I want to do in silver and copper point. I have been working around the oil painting "All the diamonds" by doing studies in charcoal, pencil and pastel. The pastel above is the result of these studies and deals with low angle winter light in the late afternoon. It bears some similarities to the piece on the home page of my blog.
