runningA bit of fun with pastels on a wood panel. But like a rookie, working with any new materials, I gessoed the finished piece and I noticed last night that the gesso is starting to peel. :0( I wonder what the best way is to preserve a pastel drawing without smudging?

I also drew this, although very rough, I wanted to capture a photo from a recent trip to the Oregon Coast Aquarium.


I hope to keep drawing, even if it is difficult to find inspiration at times. What is everyone else up to lately?
