Maggie, this is really cool. Didn't realize you could add water to pastels...then again..why not! Do you then fool around with a brush on the painting?
Yep - just let it flow and avoid trying to let it look like anything at this stage!!
I work with pastels and never knew that you can add water to pastels..live and learn! I'll have to try it...love the look...what kind of paper do you use Margaret?
Hi HildaThanks for looking in! If you think about it, pastel IS pure pigment, therefore why not mix it with water, or turenoid, or whatever. Experiment and have fun! I use a heavy weight paper that will take the wetting ie 300lb watercolour papers like Arches or Saunders Waterford, Art Spectrum's Colourfix or Uart, made right there in NY!
