Mary Cassatt’s “Child in a Straw Hat”
My attempt to capture her in pastels.
The new semester of my beloved Monday art class doesn’t start until January 9th, so I thought I would post the pastel I finished at the end of the last class. It is easy to see what I could have done differently, especially looking at them together on this page, but I think it was a decent try as I continue my quest to get comfortable with the medium. This is the largest one I’ve done so far, an 8 X 10. I went outside the box, trying to do a face. Hopefully I will see improvement with each attempt. Practice, practice, practice! I miss my peach of a teach and art pals already! Margie
