|"Floral Flame" - Detail|
I've been trying to dabble with my pastel more, and as you might have noticed - I'm sort of being successful with this. This week I've been able - so far - to complete three pastel pieces. This one, even though smaller, took the longest just because of all the details of the flower. It's easy to take your own artistic liberties with landscapes, as I did with my last two pieces this week - altering colours and adding / taking out elements. But with a floral piece, it's still has to look like a flower in the end.
Since I was able to complete this one during the day, and take nice pictures along the way, I thought I'd share the process of this one with you:
|First step: adding blocked-in clours with PanPastels|
|Step Two: Adding in details / more colour with my mount visions, building up layers.|
|Step Three: final touches and signature|
