Pastel Painting: “Solitude”

Hello everyone!

I am back to share my latest pastel painting, so let’s get started.

Working on UART sanded paper, I applied an acrylic ink underpainting using a sponge to give me a head start on establishing the texture I wanted to create for the trees and grasses.

 Next I began adding pastel, establishing the darks and the sky early on.

In the picture below, you can see some of the colors I tested for this painting. 

Here is the final painting.

Hope you enjoy this one.

Till next time!
