Orange Still Life

Very effective, a simple subject done really well.

A great piece of pastel work! I know what you mean about using oil pastels!

Fabulous pastel work.

Like the shine on the orange!

Great pastel Frank.

A lovely composition, Frank. I like the textures the Neopastel has created on the Gris paper. This is a medium we see little of. Nice work.

Lovely work Frank. (I had some oil pastels some while back...they were beyond me.)

Good pastel, tricky medium to use I think

A great painting, Frank. Never tried this medium myself but you look as if you are handling it beautifully.

Very nicely done
