Landscape in soft pastels 2


Landscape in soft pastel (my second landscape in soft pastels)

Mungyo soft pastels and Camel soft pastels on Canson pastel


After so much encouragements received from some of the best soft pastel painters here in facebook I have decided to try my hands on this second one. I had no idea how to go about it but I let my instincts play its part. I started blocking the white paper with background dark colours which ultimately served as an underpainting. Later I started out with the details. I did not use semi hard pastels for the underpainting and that is why I am not very sure if the soft pastel would hold on to the paper without a fixative. Need to work with layers and see what rewards the final look of this painting brings me.
