Simple Pastel Demonstration
Today is a beginning demo I do for new pastelists. I set up a simple still life and proceed with a process which enables students to learn the technique of pastel.
I start with a simple charcoal drawing of a simple set up. Then I add a light value that is only about 1 or 2 values lighter than the page. Then I put a general color for each element. Now it is ready to have fun adding the color.
