Knew that yesterday was going to be hot, so I started this a little before eight in the morning. Think I'll do a little more work with the tree trunks. The one on the left pulls my eye right off the page.
Went out this morning around eight to do this scene. I worked in the same spot on Friday, but overworked the pastel, so returned today to start fresh. There are water buffalo that graze in the field that was to the left of me. They were there on Friday, as well, but further off in the distance. Maybe I'll put them in a scene next time.
I finally turned the drawing into an actual mask that can be worn. The original art is done in pastel. I printed it on card stock and double mounted it. There are flaps in the back where the ribbons attach. When worn the front remains flat, it doesn't totally curl around the face.
