Water and Rocks

Another pastel, I did this from a photo I took in Scotland. This time I did a very sketchy value drawing in dark blue then used a wet watercolor brush to create value washes. When the paper was completely dry, I switched to pastels.

This is my favorite of all the paintings you have done! That lower left quadrant is just stunning in its clarity and detail. A lot of the pastelists I know do a watercolor underpainting before goimg to the pastels and I see that works very well for you, too!
