Chalk pastel on 11x14 Bristol Vellum. Gesture, simplicity and appeal; these are what I percieved in Gil's works. I hope I could learn something from copying his inspiring works. I'm getting more comfortable with the chalk pastel, and so far the bristol is the ideal paper that I have been using. I have been out of school for spring and summer, and it might be a while till I get back. I'm just trying to get as much practice as I can. I know I'll be back.
