Warm Fuzzy #34 - Fawzia

Warm Fuzzy #34 - "Fawzia" (pastel, 6x4 inches)

I've decided to enter Fawzia the fawn into the PSWC Pastels USA Exhibition, so I won't be auctioning her just yet. Wish me luck!

This was the first of the last five littles from the last batch of underpaintings. I got them all pasteled last week during my work days at the Carriage House Gallery in Boerne, TX. Here's a 12 minute speed video of Fawzia's pastel progress:

Wow, I have really been collecting a lot of video footage!! You can watch a real-time video of the preliminary underpainting of Fawzia, along with the others in this batch (and more!) on my Patreon page here, by becoming a Patron!

"Ha Choo" is the result of Friday's Virtual Open Studio day. I'll have the video posted soon on my Patreon page (available on the $10 Bunny Buddies level). Here she is shown with two of the underpainting stages.

So yes! My Virtual Open Studio days are up and running!
  • Are you craving the company of like-minded artists who love to chat about art stuff?
  • Are you in a slump with your art and need an inspiration boost?
  • Do you want to learn more about pastel and love to learn by watching?
  • Is a full length workshop not in your budget?

I'm excited to brag that my most recent sheep painting won the Jack Richeson & Company Award at the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod juried exhibition 2020 For Pastels Only.

See the show here. The show and sale is still in progress through July 14.

I realized recently that I had never posted any process pics for this painting, and I had taken a bunch! Here are a few of my process pics below.
