It Takes A Village
This pastel is in step by step form in my new book.
I did this one on sanded Sennelier paper which is becoming my paper of choice again.
It's a little rough on the fingertips until the grain of the paper gets filled. (yikes)
Although as a rule, I don't usually smudge and merge the pastel unless the painting is a skyscape or seascape.
The sunset is merged with my fingers. I 'sculpted' the clouds this way.All other areas of this painting are not smudged.
This is an unframed pastel 25.5" x 19.5"
Prints are also available through Fine Art America:
