Creation of a Pastel Painting

This digitally framed pastel of Lime Kiln Lighthouse is a 9x 12 on Uart done as prep for a large acrylic
canvas painting commission. The pastel is my "thumbnail" for the larger painting.
I wanted to work out color and composition for this and this little pastel helped me with my plan for the larger acrylic painting.

What's On The Easel

This is what I'm working on and it is from a photo my brother took of Lime Kiln Lighthouse on San Juan Island. I'm painting this later in acrylic on a huge canvas. This painting is my way of working out the color and composition. I did the under painting with pastels and alcohol wash.Stay Tuned for updates!
