Last Caper

“Last Caper”, pastel, 18×12

My pastel, “Last Caper” has be accepted for the “For Pastels Only 2015” exhibit of the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. The show will be at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth, MA from June 17 to July 12. I was drawn to the lone sailboat marooned at low tide on the bayside of Cape Cod. The reflections of the mast were reflected in the shallow tidepools. To me the image coveys the quiet and peaceful places that are found on the Cape. I am thrilled that this is included in this prestigious pastel show. Artist, Marla Baggetta was the Juror of Seclection. Technical notes: I did an underpainting of watercolor on Uart #400 sanded paper that was mounted on archival board. Various brands of pastels used included NuPastel, Rembrandt, Girault, Unison, and Terry Ludwig. Fine details were added with pastel pencils.
