Pastel painting is growing on me. Oils comes first of course, but I am painting with pastels more frequently now. I think it has something to do with their versatility. Much like oils pastels can be used and manipulated in so many ways. Whether you like hyper realism, impressionist or abstract work pastels have all bases covered.
I have started making a few short videos on basic pastel techniques with some tips thrown in here and there. The first one is about using watercolor paper instead of the more expensive and difficult to find pastel paper.
Look out for more pastel related videos over the next few months. If you want to receive updates please subscribe below. There is also my Facebook page for more news. Next time I will start a painting demo with pastels.
Until then enjoy your painting!
