The quest continues, inching toward the 100 number. I had a moment of panic, thinking I can’t possibly get to 100 of these. But then I rationalised that 30+ are completed and they seemed to get finished without a lot of stress! For these I continued to use the Richeson pastels with the exception of the Sennelier #463. I like the Richeson pastels, how they lay down on the paper and their color. I have a small set of only 24, I believe, so there certainly may be more options with this brand than I am aware of. Again, with the Wallis paper, they work well.
There is a new post from PastelNews.com…good articles in it. Do check it out…well done…hats off to Mario and his site.
I read a good article on composition and using the “golden mean” in painting. It was on a blog or a web site of a pastelist. I will share details at another time. In the meantime….happy painting…
