Pastel course

Misty Morning

Setting the scene
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. 

Why not start painting pastels this Autumn and sign up to the Pastel Online course

The price of the course is £55.00 , there is no time limit to the course.

Pastels always look like such a fun medium to work in, I'd love to learn more about them.
