This is my first attempt at using pastel. The couple at the left, I perceived to be young and in love, with two older ladies watching them, reminiscing. The guy to the right has things to do and places to go and has no interest in the show, he's just waiting for the light to change. So this was my interpretation of the scene. It started out as just a drawing to nail down my composition ideas, then I decided to try some pastels I have, "just trying out colors." Before I knew it I had too much work invested and made it my final submission because the deadline was fast approaching! http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/ 8" x 10 1/2", pastel on paper.
