‘Twenty Something’, pastel pencil on 20 x 26″ toned, sanded paper

An experiment with pastel pencil on a quality sanded paper instead of the sanded board I usually use. The effect was quite different, more ethereal. And ethereal too in the sense that the bond between medium and support seems so much more fragile. I don’t think this art still exists in this form, even now, except as a photo for that reason. This in spite of my best efforts to preserve it.
