Chalk Pastels

I started a course the other day taught by Dawn at the local Library. This week we studied Van Gogh and we used chalk pastels.
Here's a chalk pastel I did of a detail of the sky from Starry Starry Night.
It turned out quite well I think, I used handmade chalk pastels my Mom made, they were really nice!

Awesome Josh!
Glad to see you were inspired ... and I suspect your homework will be done by next Wednesday as well? :)

Good job, Josh!

I'm surprised that Dawn used van Gough as inspiration for her first lesson. NOT. :)

I'll look forward to seeing your work from next week.

I love van Gogh--he's one of the few painters who I can actually name, too. Ha! But I love the way he uses colour. I have a thing about colour...and I love seeing it well played with.

Very nice, Josh!
Be sure to post any other chalk pastels you do!
