OF 31 DAY ART CHALLENGE!
9X12" ORIGINAL PASTEL PAINTING
BY Barbara J. Mason
Today I experimented with a different type of paper.
I typically use a sanded or soft rag paper, but
I found a tablet of Canson Pastel Paper and decided to give it a try.
I really like the smooth surface and the fact that it allows me
to produce really thin and straight lines.
This is a challenge with the sanded surfaces.
With the Canson Pastel Paper I was able to apply multiple thin layers of soft pastels.
I wasn't able to add as many layers as with the sanded surfaces,
but enough to create the desired depth and color intensity.
Next I will try a landscape and a floral
painting on this surface and see how things turn out!
