More Fun With Pastels - Jason Kidd

I'm having more fun with these pastels lately. I'm kind of using them as poor man's paints right now. I like the fact that you can get more information across with them with fewer marks than a pencil, but without the mess of paints. It's a great way to test out how you'd like a painting to look, yet it stands pretty well on its own.

I purposely wanted the top of his head to be out of the frame. I wanted to get as close to the action as possible and make it seem like you're watching something in the middle of happening. I think it adds to the movement and energy of it, but, after seeing this one complete, maybe I should have a bit more of his head in the shot and less of his junk.

Who knows, maybe I'll decide to put the thing down on canvas in the near future.
