Just Before Dawn

Just Before Dawn
8x8 pastel on Wallis Warm Belgium Mist

Yesterday's painting was from my imagination.  This one is from memory, an early morning trip to visit my daughter.

What is different:

  • Started with soft pastels, Terry Ludwigs and Sennelier and blended with hard pastels, Gireault and Nupastels.

My thoughts:

  • I liked this blending technique, I found it my accident searching for the right color.
  • I like this ground, now I am glad I bought several pads when it was available, can't wait for the white version.


  1. Oh, I love that rim around the moon! Just saw that the other day, your painting depicts it perfectly!
