Pastel Painting Demo: Country View

Hi creative friends!

Today I am bringing you a pastel painting demo for a recent painting I did.
I have included a few progress shots, as well as the video.
(Click on the photo above.)

UArt 400 and the thumbnail

Below you can see the underpainting I did using hard pastels.
I chose rosy hues in four values, and then I smudged these into the tooth of the paper using a piece of foam pipe insulation. 
This lets me start with an unfocused, dreamy quality. 



About midway through the painting…

Here is the finished painting. You can see little bits of the rosy underpainting peaking through..
