Clouds


The next lesson in pastels is clouds. I am still in this section. Here are the first two of the four that I have completed.


The one above is on pastelmat and the one below is Uart 400. There is a huge difference in the way the pastels sit on these papers. I will use all the left over Uart to sample/flatten my pastels.



This (below) was the first things I did and I used Uart. It seems to have come out okay but I am now disenchanted with it.

  1. Is it resisting the color? Looks like some skipping.

    1. It is sanded paper. They all do that which is why I LOVE the velour paper

  2. Oh Beth, the landscape on the pastelmat is so gorgeous! Pastels are such a wonderful medium. I've only done a tiny bit, but maybe some day I'll go back to them, with your example in mind.

    1. Thanks Penny. I really love the velour paper the best and my paper order finally came yesterday. I've got a biggish piece on my easel and will do some painting on the velour today. I'm really loving this.
