Landscape in soft pastels 3


3rd landscape in soft pastels

Mungyo gallery semi hard pastels, Conte carre landscape hard pastels, Mungyo Artist's soft pastels and Koh-I-NOOR hardtmuth Artist's dry chalk


Canson white pastel paper


Trying a difficult composition this time. Lots of foliage in the foreground...first finished off the composition with Mungyo semi hard pastels....blocking in the white paper with dark colours.....I gave the sky a white light pinkish feel to suggest a early morning scene.....the sprayed fixative over it to fix the first layer. Started working on the second layer with soft pastels and did the details o the third layer using Conte carre hard pastels. Love the colours...love the pastels...and really enjoyed doing this composition. Still a work in progress.
