Footwork in Pastels

Two new paintings for the Footwork series are completed. As mentioned in a previous post these will make four. You can see the first two, He Dances and She Dances, on this post. Not a surprise, these are all done in pastels. Pastels have such vibrancy that adds to the movement.

Texas Two Step
Pastel, 12 x 12 inches on Pastelbord

Boot Scootin'
Pastel, 12 x 12 inches on Pastelbord

I switched the name on the first one. Texas Two Step suits that better and Boot Scootin' as they both have on boots in the second. The Hill Country Autumn is finished, too, but it was too late to take a photo. We have so many trees and with daylight time after 3:00 p.m. it is almost impossible to find a clear spot of sunshine and I like taking the photos of pastels in direct sunlight. I didn't have to change the color at all for my monitor on these two. Hope they look fine on yours.

Those look good together.

Jo Castillo said...

Thank you, Joanna. They sort of did themselves. Fun.

Jo: I must say I liked 'Boot Scootin' best. What would you expect from a country music fan.

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, Boot Scootin' does sound familiar and country, huh? I did play a little country music when painting!

The Tile Lady said...

I love these, Jo! Very nice. I wouldn't have thought to do a footwork series!

Jo Castillo said...

Tile lady, I really didn't think of it the first feet, but it just started from there and is fun. Thanks.
