Discussion at the Fire Pit

This is the unfinished sketch from yesterday with gouache added today.  By the time I finished today I had unintentionally changed the mood of the sketch from upbeat to tense. The figure on the right now has his lips pursed and is looking down a bit grimly at an equation, the other is listening for the solution, perhaps showing a bit of a tired worry across his face as he waits.

This is a pastel and gouache sketch with the colors lightened a bit with Snapsead.

    I love this. It captures both new and old . The ancient idea of gathering around fire with family.The new fire pits of that design that represent our cultures approach to this ancient ritual. Beautiful!

    Wonderful faces, feet and hands, and I enjoy the way the vegetation frames the figures.
