I took a class from a wonderful figurative oil painter Kevin Bielfuss. My paintings were awful. I was so ashamed of what I did, I threw them away before I even left the classroom. A lesson in humility it was. But I had my camera during the workshop and came home and did a few pastels of the models. Much more in my comfort zone. Here's one.
This is a 12x9 pastel on foamcore. Bidding begins at $150.
