ROMEO original painting pastel/board 9x9 K.Roberti

I spend the last few days getting re-acquainted with pastel the medium I once love.
so fun!
re-work Romeo today, I like the loose pastel strokes, 
better suited to ROMEO playful mood.
Ah, I'll need to push the background back a bit.
But, it's wine time now!
Oh, my Romeo

I enjoyed my painting process in the last few day immensely. 
I need to slow down and paint deliberately.  
With full intent and awareness of my thought process.
I am challenging my ability to "see" more.
not sure where I hear follow statement but it sure got my full attention.
 "The insensitive eye can paint a picture. It is unlikely to produce a work of art."

I am good today, resumed my block-in and work out my composition a bit.
