I took my pastels to sketch/paint with. I'm a bit burned out on sketching and using the watercolors.
The results of about an hour and a half with the pastels. I'm happy with the over all effect. I will ponder the idea of finishing it for framing. The cloth and horns need work. In real life the horns in my painting are darker. I would also make the cloth a bit more cloth-like.
I'm thinking that part of the reason I feel it is a pretty good start is that I didn't know what we were going to paint. I approached it like a sketch not worrying about whether it would be a good painting or not. I used my easel and stood to paint. Hmmm.
We went to lunch at Macocos again. It was good, Mexican food in the Yucatan style. After that I met Gene at the food trailer by the Art Center and we sat outside while he had a hamburger and I drank a Coke from Mexico with real sugar. It was a good day.
