PanPastels Experiment

My first try at landscape with my new PanPastels.

I know it is kinda flat, not enough depth. For a first try I am happy with it.

Could anyone suggest how to achieve more depth without making it muddy?

Btw, I used only red, yellow and blue with some black, white and grey. Forcing myself to mix colors instead of relying on pre mixed.

Susan I love this. The pink is so spring and light. It makes me happy to look at it.

As you know I'm still in the novice stage, but I believe if you add some darker values in the foregrounds and lighten the furthest mountain it would push everything back and give it depth.

That's funny. The pinks are actually oranges but in the photo it does look pink! Did not notice that.

I started using the curves in the editor on my phone. Made a world of difference in color matching.

Curves? What are curves? (In this context anyway.)

This is a photoshop tute but it's the same tool I have on my phone.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

The cool thing about the curves tool on my phone is it shows the changes in real time as you drag your finger around. I stare at my painting and drag the curves until they match. Pretty close anyway. I really don't care to get too technical.
