Gold Splendor

Sunday, March 29th, 2009
I had started this yesterday as a demonstration in my pastel class. I wanted to show the effects of doing a light application of NuPastel and water (ended up being my coffee) on Wallis paper as an undertone or foundation for your painting and building up with layers of soft pastel...students really did some exceptional paintings using this approach.

Cheyenne Farmer's Market

Thursday, March 19th, 2009
This was a study of the Farmer's market in Cheyenne. It's painted on a green Ambersand Pastelbord with a heavy underpainting of pastels brushed in with water. I should have given it a little more time to dry but was anxious to get in with the "sticks".
I've attached a few of the steps for you to view....sorry I didn't get more along the way.

Blocked in some major shapes of the market.

Laid in a heavy application of warm and cool pastels and using a stiff brush mixed with a little water I brushed the pastel into the tooth of the board. This is a much heavier application than I generally would start with.

Saratoga Shed

Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Still experimenting with the Ambersand pastelbords...very different for me than the Cansen supports but I do like them.
This is a little shed/shack next to the Platte river in Saratoga, Wyoming....beautiful place!
