Pastel and collage on sanded paper

I taught 4 week long workshops this summer at Ghost Ranch. The pastel class had a name that surprised me… “Pastel Groove”. It wasn’t my title, but I decided to do my best to live up to it. We abstracted landscapes, used pan pastels, stencils, and collage! I have always loved to tear up watermedia paintings and collage them into new paintings. This summer was my first time to try it with pastel. It is harder to stick down through the powdery pastel, but I love the effect!
