Milan Eve, original pastel

Over the past year, I've been experimenting more with the texture of my working surfaces. The sparkle of layered pastels continues to fascinate me, and I like to heighten this effect whenever possible.

In this piece inspired by a visit to Milan, Italy, I was interested in the heavy atmosphere of a warm summer evening as the heat of the afternoon fades into the coming darkness of night. I had a lot of fun layering in a thick texture, evident here in the foreground pavement and the surrounding buildings, and I think that the gnarly texture loosens things a bit and introduces the murky atmosphere that I was interested in capturing. In addition, I loved the warm / cool color contrasts throughout this composition.
