Two Landscapes, Two Approaches
Here are two landscape paintings I've done on pastel paper coated with clear gesso. Both are 9x12 and I used Mungyo and Yarka soft pastels. As I am new to pastel, I'm trying different style approaches to painting with pastel. I am more attracted to the impressionistic style and not using ground color because I like the colorful effect. I painted it with just my imagination-no reference. The other, realistic approach is much harder for me to achieve, but I think this one worked well-it is from a tutorial by Susan Jenkins. Comments and critique are welcome.
