We leave Budapest in a few hours. It’s been an amazing stay of almost three weeks – the city is more than I hoped or expected. But I did learn a lesson and that is, you can’t do everything!
I had planned on finishing up my online project as well as seeing the city. I had also planned, along with the daily sketches (Project 365) that I post on my Facebook Page, to do some plein air pastelling. I brought four sheets of mounted Wallis to work on plus a couple of sheets of mounted UART paper.
Well, I am disappointed to say I only did one pastel. And that was done yesterday, in the apartment, from a photo. And the reason that one got painted? This blog! I wanted this post to be about work I had done here in Budapest so I was highly motivated!
This Budapest pastel isn’t complete and later, I’ll talk about what I want to work on. Let’s take a look.
So, there you have it – my one and only in-Budapest pastel! I’ll work on it at home and then create another blog post. I have to say, I think, in the end, it’s gonna be a good one!
Now I am off to pack – the taxi picks us up in six hours for our 6:30am (ugh) flight.
Always, you know I love to hear from you. Let me know what you think about this pastel or anything else going on here on the blog.
PS. Here’s the later blog post,
