Fall Foliage Better Late Than Never

Autumn Slope

Pastel on Black Canson

It is an unusual thing for me to work on black and also on Canson.  I had a very talented friend explain to me her method of getting good results on Canson, and with some extra effort I resolved this one to my liking.  It is a scene from my studio north window from about 2 months ago.

By the way, if you saw this video of Sheila M. Evans working in pastel, and you enjoy her work, you have an opportunity to vote for her in the Best of 2012 contest at Making a Mark.  Polls close about 2.5 hours from now!

Pastel Brands and Materials

Pastel Brands and Materials  

See the new page here at Pastel Workshop: Pastel Supplies.  It provides a resource when you are researching or reviewing pastel materials, to include major brand soft pastels, paper, and miscellaneous materials.  I will be updating this page as needed, and plan to list major catalog retailers next.
