Dancing Palms


This is the third in a series of paintings done for WetCanvas, using an alcohol underwash. I am hooked on this method now! Pastels on 9 x 12 PastelMat.

Red Barn




Here is another WetCanvas project using underpainting of alcohol wash. Here is the first step, the wash.
And the finished painting. I tried to correct the perspective on the silo a little, but it got a little wobbly, so I stopped. Just consider it an OLD silo!!

Lorikeet




This was an experiment for me this time. I used an alcohol wash underpainting before adding any other pastel. I really like how this one turned out and I'm ready to try another one! Hope you like it also!
I'm showing you the three steps I took to the finished piece.
Step 1 is the alcohol wash.
Step 2 I started adding color. Didn't get it finished in one sitting though.
Step 3 is the finished piece!
