Outer Banks Pastel 11x14 SOLD

'Afternoon Storm' 11x14 pastel
Today's painting is a beach scene from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Today we worked on underpainting and did Richard McKinley's exercise of doing the same subject with 9 different underpaintings. It is a lot of work but well worth it! My student did a fabulous job on hers and hopefully learned a lot. I chose to do a demo using a value based underpainting. I used a dark purple-blue nupastel and an alcohol wash on Wallis paper. This tonal underpainting works great for beach scenes!
