Blue Agave Armor

Blue Agave Armor
12 x 9
Pastel on Art Spectrum Raw Sienna

As I'm focused on using blue pastels, I thought I'd do another blue agave. Well, turns out, this blue has purple, violet, blue, khaki, olive green teal, sea green, magenta/fuchsia and lavender. So, technically, only one blue pastel.

What fascinated me about this agave plate of armor was the gradient from dark to light, the depth and light. As I was naming the painting, I couldn't help but think of our men in blue. My prayers go out to them all.

Here are some progress shots - I did this painting on raw sienna paper.
