Tag Archives: Pastel drawing start to finish

From Start to Finish

Some people love before, during, and after photos.

I’m one of those people.

But that’s a big tease for this blog post

because

I pretty much forgot to take pictures,

but I do have a few!Client photo…

I know, absolutely adorable.

But take note.

Look at the all the obvious light and shadows…

a perfect photo to paint.

My little studio

You don’t see my new 120 piece Sennelier Pastel Set…

that I LOVE…

because the drawing begins with a pastel pencil…

and, yes, this is a large painting, 18″ x 24″

For some paintings,

I grid my photo and my paper to assist me with the drawing.

Now, I’m ready to start applying color.

I started with some dark shades, and

then I completely forgot about my camera.
Thanks for following along,
