Sunlight on the Marsh
9x12 Pastels on art spectrum colorfix, aubergine
Day 2 of the Carsten workshop sponsored by PSNH. Robert demonstrated a technique to encourage looseness and impressionistic light. The basic shapes are first roughly blocked in and then layers of pastel are scribbled over it almost obliterating the image which is then re-worked on top. I decided to use the same reference photo in order to compare the various techniques.
