Artist's description:

Painted in acrylics, acrylic medium and pastels on cradled Ampersand Artist Panel. Ready to hang as is flush on a nail per panel. Or I can add wires if you like. The pastels are fixed with pastel fixative, The final layer is sealed with a u-v filtering varnish.

This is the first time I used pastels on an acrylic painting to record gestures and it's been an aha moment. When I first started painting, my two favorite media were oils and pastels (used separately). I have been picking up the pastels again in my gouache paintings, but this is the first with acrylics...and I like it. The result is a painting with a different feel. I like that too. It's so satisfying to observe the crosspollination of working in different media. What I like in a small gouache, I will then find myself trying in a large acrylic. The bright colors of acrylics influence my color choices and their application in my oils, and so on.
