|'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.
