Day 14 Magic Clouds

When I worked as a graphic designer more times than I like to remember, typos or graphic problems didn't show up until the piece was printed. Ugh! 
So as I look at today's piece after photographing it, I think, "why did I make the classic mistake of putting the cloud smack dab in the the middle of the drawing?" As my students often say when asked that same question, "Because that's the way it was in the photograph." I'm suppose to know better, but there it is! Too bad because I like the effect I got by doing an oil wash first on Uart sanded paper and then applying the pastel. This will be a good candidate for a redo.
"Magic Cloud"  8" x 12" pastel on sanded Uart paper
And the next time I"ll leave out the rainbow which is next to impossible to draw with pigment - rainbows are pure light!
