Hey, this is my new painting - peppers in my sister’s garden. It’s a soft pastel on Pastelmat. I hope you like it
This is gorgeous. What a great job with the pastels.
Very nice. Your picture inspires me to continue the process
May I ask how you started the process… drawing, sketch, free hand? Did you just start drawing with the pastels?
Thanks, that’s very kind of you
Hi Frankie, thank you for the nice comment. I am glad that I can be an inspiration to others. Coming back to your question… I always start with sketching, I use dark pencil pastels for the initial sketch. Then, I start applying colors starting from the darkest going to the lightest tones.
It sounds like a good plan, but in the process I often do something spontaneous, I do not sketch each leaf, only the main composition,
so many elements are created during painting
Great work, Denise. I especially like your color choices in the leaves and background. What size is your format?
Anna, another lovely painting. I love your style.
This is very nice, beautiful!
