Stirling Art Club's Pastel Demonstration
Friday's evening's pastel demonstration was pastel with a difference - working on 300lb Arches rough w/c paper, I did the underpainting in layers of translucent watercolour washes, then started working pastel into this while the washes were still damp. This is the stage I took it to, for the benefit of the group to come up close at the end and see how much the w/c plays an important role in the 'painerly' development of the picture. Now it's back in the studio, and I have contemplated it for a weekend, I am ready to develop it further - I do believe it could be a rather nice gallery piece as it has some good beginnings!!
