New medium: Soft pastels
Some time ago my neighbour gave me a 72 soft pastels set. Up to last Friday I didn’t have the courage to use them. But suddenly – obviously encouraged by the soft pastel thread over a WetCanvas, I decided to have a first go. Actually I wasn’t too fond of them, and having no fixative I didn’t want to have my scanner get dusty with them.
Yesterday however I bought a fixative spray. Well, I must admit I wasn’t careful enough and got some nasty spots on the paper. Thanks to photoshop I managed to erase them. And here they are, my first pastel florals!
I neither had a photo or a real flower serving as reference. I just remembered some flowers and wanted to play with the colours of my pastels.
