Studio Painting

The studio painting was done on Wallis Sanded paper starting with alcohol washes, and finished with soft pastel.

About the forth wash with hard pastels, alcohol,l and a hake brush

About the fourth wash with hard pastels, alcohol, and a hake brush

Hard pastels are applied lightly in layers with each layer washed in with at least 90%1 alcohol. This gives the underpainting a stained glass translucent effect upon which to further develop the painting with softer pastels.
