I didn’t plan it, but yesterday I worked on two paintings of my son John. I finished the larger painting on the easel, John Hudson and His Father. It’s based on a photo of John when he was a wee lad. The smaller painting, John in a White Shirt, is based on a recent photo.
After taking this photo, I worked on several pastels. You can see my pastel sets. The larger set is soft pastels; the smaller set is hard pastels. I also have several boxes filled with miscellaneous pastels, charcoals, and Conte crayons.
