6" x 9.5"
Still life setup for the Artists Bootcamp. Started in class as a sketch while demonstrating "how to start a drawing." The students first played spin-the-iron while in a circle around it, doing short sketches and holding them up after each iron spin. The iron is an antique that used some sort of gas to heat it. Wonder how many blew up. Some poor soul's finger marks have worn the paint off on the handle. Found it in a shop in Maine, couldn't resist the colors. Used now as a door-stop or still-life object. This pastel is on gray Canson with Nupastels and black pastel pencil for lettering.
