pastel still life

Still Life With Pumpkins (1999)
This was a somewhat more successful still life attempt, worked over gray Canson.  Pastels (other than the smudging issue) proved to be a much better medium for me in this context: malleable and without the added worry of a section drying before I could finish working it.  For such a large-scale piece (close to life-size) on my first attempt with oil pastels, I think it turned out reasonably well.
