Pastel Swirls

An experimental painting in which I attempted to compose a piece that arrives in flow without forethought. The piece hangs over my bed; I like the feeling of water currents.

I painted this piece on a gessoed Masonite board. I like to leave the brush strokes in the gesso , so that when I paint over the ridges, the paint will catch on the high spots and create depth in the layers of paint.
