|"Last Light" start|
I am experimenting with soft pastels. For "Last Light", I created a ground on canvas with gouache straight from the tube using a combination of ultramarine, burnt sienna and viridian. The ground formed is matte, and toothy, which I like. I built up the lights, leaving some of the ground showing in the darkest darks. Interesting effect, and completely counter-intuitive for me thinking about how to lay color next to other color, rather than using my limited palette of oils or watercolors to make the color I am looking for.
Thanks for looking.. we'll see what happens next.
