Step by Step Process of River Dance Pastel on Pastel Mat Tinted Paper.
I thought I would post the steps of this pastel, and give you a short blow by blow on my process.
I had the Pastel Mat paper in my paper selection and have not used it much before, and this was a white sheet.
I thought I would just tint it my own color, and do a WILD under painting.
So with my liquid acrylics I poured some colors and let them flow into each other ..It made for a very dramatic effect.
I had done this made up scene before in acrylics as a demonstration for an art group last year, and wanted to see if my paintings differed using a different medium.
You can be the judge on that.
Directly below is the original 16" x 20" acrylic painting which is on stretched canvas.
