I decided to work on my pastels today and wanted to keep things loose and colorful. I had a couple of failed pastel paintings on UArt sanded paper that I wanted to reuse. Last night, I brushed off most of the pigment and then used a wash of mineral spirits to dissolve the rest back into the grit.
I feel I had a very successful day. Below are process shots of my first pastel of the day:
|"Tall Trees", 6"x9", pastel on 320 grit UArt|
|"Farm Lane", 8"x10", pastel on 400 grit UArt sanded paper|
