“Glassy Water” 2020 mixed media, acrylic and NeoII pastel on paper. 8x10 Unframed. Let your eyes and mind follow this calm, glassy waterway through the banks filled with summer foliage. This painting’s story starts several years prior to its creation. NeoII pastel is a new product and has characteristics like no other art material. I had tried to use them alone several years before but never was satisfied. It was only after mixing their use with other mediums that I found a satisfying way to use them in landscape art.
