Shine Through Pastel Painting

'Shine Through' - Pastel painting; Available
I put the finishing 'tweaks' on my pastel painting, 'Shine Through' tonight. I'm pretty happy with how it went, and I learnt a lot along the way. 

I love detail shots, as I'm sure you've all realized, so here it is:

And for those who might be curious, here are all the pastels I used, mostly Mount Visions and NuPastels. There's two Schmincke, one Ludwig and one Richardson. This picture is after I cleaned them all up from working with them...they're not so lovely right after a painting when they're horribly dirty! 

That's right if you counted - it's over 50 different pastel colours! Some are very evident where they are, and others not so much. I literally used up about half of my collection of pastels to create this piece, and I was still 'searching' for the right colour sometimes, and not finding it. 


  1. Love the finished picture......lots of beautiful colours used.
    Must be very satisfying to finish it and be happy with the outcome.

  2. Beautiful! It was so fun to see it emerge with each new layer of color.
