"Dune Shadows" 7x10 pastel $150
Day 19 of 30 in 30
Home from work at 3 and back to work at 6. I wondered if I would have time to paint. I could at least get started. My plan was for a watercolor under-painting and to continue with my dunes theme. I bought a block of Arches cold pressed and the under-painting went smoothly especially since I was covering it and could be as splashy as I wanted to be.
Then the nightmare started, I figured out I should have bought hot pressed! Those little holes were so annoying. Just when I thought I hated it I decided it wasn't so bad after all. Some smoothing to fill holes and I finished. I got to paint after all, I don't need hours I just need to get started! I do like the watercolor under-painting but I will try a different surface. So far my favorite is pastelmat - I may try this little scene again tomorrow.
