I just added one more step which i believe is final.The idea behind this kind of loose pastel art is to create open pieces that is at any time you stop it can be considered a painting in itself. From a few strokes to more complex shapes and light impressionism is shown in this technique as open form.In this respect accuracy to likeness, precison, reliasm, dissapear and much is left to the imagination of the viewr who can add with their eyes the roundness of complete pictures.
the loose pastel work I am doing lately is open art, at any time you can stop and at any time you can add more strokes for more definition.
this is a mask from Ghana displayed in the Casa de Africa museum in Havana, Cuba. As I could not take pictures in the museum I had to sketch it there before i drew it here in colored pencils on pastel paper 13x19in.
