I was very happy to be back at it today even if I had far less than stellar results! I seriously need to invest in proper pastel paper and some quality pastels! Everything is a bit dark and the tooth of the paper was difficult to cover.




Feel free to share further insights!
Thanks in advance...
Tania :D

Tania,

I have no experience with pastels, but I think you did a great job on this.  The sheep and the big tree are the best part.

Very lovely painting, Tania :clap: :clap: :clap: Actually the dark areas accentuate the drama of the sunlit field and the sheep O0

Lisa i missed your beautiful painting, very well done.  :yippee:

 :confused: Dennis , what paper did you use for this painting class,  it is kind of shiny, did you gesso on a board?

Danielle, I used a thick cardboard with a special Pastel Ground brushed onto it. It is a thick paste with ground pumice. You should be able to buy in any good art shop.
