In the shadows

In the shadows
Sennelier soft pastel
on black cartridge paper.
It is the last week of the term and we seem to be running around in circles. While I would love to have some time to make some art, all I seem to to have the time for is making preparation for the ski camp next week. The Poet is going to a respite care centre so he can have a holiday while I am spending time with 120 kids from school. It is also a great chance to get to know the other staff members who are also going. Between now and then is one more get-up, one more school assembly and heaps of tidying up. I might even get to see the top of my desk ... or maybe not.

The pastel sketch on black cartridge paper with this entry is the result of Monday night's art class. We had the same setup as last week ... the one with the candles back there a couple of entries ago. This is another corner where the light shone through an old cane chair that must have featured in thousands of art work made at the Ku-ring-gai Art Centre. There were some really strong shadows made by the art light and some more subtle ones cast by the overhead lights. I made it look sort of like a bag of bones.

I saw this on Flickr and wondered what it was. but now that I have the background info, I see the chair. Very nice. The blue being the sole color is great.
