I'm back to waves. They are so much fun to paint! This one is done in pastel. I haven't used pastels for almost 2 years. I can't believe that! I really do enjoy working with them and have so many pastels and supports to use for pastels that I should be using them for a painting every week for the next 10 years!
Of course, you know I'm not going to do THAT, but I think I will concentrate on using them more often. I love the variety of texture that can be achieved with them.
For this painting, I applied fine pumice gel on a mat board using crisscrossing brush strokes. The texture doesn't show very much in the finished painting because I blended most of the color with my finger. Some of the final additions of white and gray are not blended, which gives a bit of variety to the painting.
