Color for a Dreary Day

12" x 9" Pastel on  Gray Coated Paper
The weather here has been hazy, snowy, smoggy, cold and gray for several days now. Speaking for myself at least, some brighter, more cheerful colors would be welcome. Here is a pastel sketch I made a few years ago at the weekly drawing session. Doubtless the model had no idea the bright colors she wore might later provide some relief to eyes wearied by the dreary blur of some mid-January. Glad I got out the bright colors that evening.

For more about drawing sessions, go to "Labels" on the side bar and click on "sketching" or "drawing."
