This drawing is an exploration of pastels on suede board. I love how the texture of this support just begs to receive my pastel. It's as if a million little fibers are sitting on the surface with their tiny arms outstretched in anticipation of grabbing my stroke. With that, I love how I am able to approach my subject. This bear is so large and solid. His strength and mass is readily visible. But there is a gentle touch of softness, of warmth and sensitivity that balances his massive nature in a very subtle way. I love how these two themes play off each other in this pastel artwork.
