Moody Blues, Derwentwater
Painted in Pastels by Jane Ward
Size 18 x 6.5 inches
Chilling days in the Lakes found me trying out some new pastel techniques on an old favourite pastel paper Hermes P400 Grey. Some folks don't like this strong harsh pastel sandpaper and for those who are just beginning in pastels it can be very cruel to the fingertips. Because of this you can load so many bright layers on top without getting any moody effects. I tried a little Acrylic under painting and then choose a tonal palette of Unison sticks.
