Morning Sail, was painted on an atmospheric day, threatening rain clouds and soft mist in the mountains and a still reflected lake.
The horizon line is approx. 1/4 of the paper, this will aid a dramatic sky in the composition and create distance in the mountain scene.
Colours were kept subdued working with tonal hues rather than exact colour shades, this will help to give a peaceful harmony to the painting.
Working on Fisher 400 pastel paper, this is project two on my online pastel course.
It is a perfect course to start painting with pastels, with many handy tips, step by step instructions and clear photographs, materials explained and above all personal feedback with each project. I have painted with Pastels for over twenty years, and find them such a wonderful medium.
