  • Gorgeous photo! Basil’s fur has so many great highlight colors. It kind of reminds me of when I used to watch my grandpa draw with his pastels. He always said that black was the most beautiful color because of the highlights he could use. 🙂

    • Thank you Robin! Black has all the other colors in it, and depending on where and how the light hits you can see hints of other colors. I learned to lay down all other colors to make my black so that it looked alive, just like Basil’s fur.

      I didn’t know your grandfather painted–and in pastel no less! Until recently it wasn’t really considered a “finished” medium, only one for sketching, but there are beautiful pastel paintings over the 300 years there have been pastels in use.
