Rembrandt pastels are semi-hard, so I got into the habit of pressing feilry hard when painting with them. However... now I'm doing that, I keep accidentally crumbling my Unisons! Nooooooo!
So to practice a lighter touch, I painted a simple landscape.
It's on White Pastelmat, dyed a bright orange with Doctor Martins Radiant inks. for the underpainting I used Nupastel. And the painting was finished with Rembrandt and Unison pastels.
The underpainting is much livelier than the actual painting. I need to remedy that in future works.
The finished painting is good enough for my purposes, but it's not really the style I like to paint in. But, the sky is one of my better ones. I generally suck at skies, so try to ppiant landscapes with a high horizon line.
