Pastel study – Wall Street

pastel study on Wallis paper, about 9x12

This is a small study of Wall Street done in pastel as a demo in my private class this morning. The reference is from a grey, overcast day and hence the buildings look very monochromatic. I wanted to push the colors of the stone, keeping some of the somber quality (it WAS on one of the worst days for the stock market back in October), yet pulling in some color variation for interest. Will ultimately be painting this in oil.
