MORNING ON THE MOSS – PASTEL PAINTING

I was trying to capture the essence of the low-lying and fertile area behind our coastal sandy belt and decided to give it a go in pastels. I initially blocked in the dark areas with acrylic paint: a practice I had read about recently and wanted to try.

I am a bit ambivalent about the result, but it made a change from the watercolours.

Other landscapes and florals are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. I love this, Graham. I really like to use pastel over acrylic in mixed media work , but I never thought to use the technique like this in a figurative painting.
