'Flowing Free' 8x10 pastel
I tried a different technique for this sunflower painting. I used Diane Townsend paper which is her own home made surface on a watercolor type paper. I started with a first layer of harder pastels over which I painted Golden pastel ground. That liquified the pastel and added more tooth to the paper. When it dried I added softer pastels. I loved working over the texture left by the pastel ground. I will be trying this some more!
