Pastel 10

These are beginning to serve me as a mind cleanser.  I use the colors and shapes and the playfulness to slow down and mentally breathe.  The shapes and colors arrange themselves - I just listen.

Same as the others - 2 minutes of drawing (eyes closed again) - ugly lines.  A few minutes of lines drawn from a cedar branch.  Then some forms started to inspire me, so it was time to pick up the Sharpie - maybe 3 minutes.  Then for about 10-15 minutes the colors just made sense.

18 x 24, Sharpie and pastel on kraft paper.  Click image for closer look.

Sometimes it's just so refreshing to break out of the lines :)
