'Winter Sunset' 5x7 pastel ©Karen Margulis
Today I am sharing one more winter landscape. This painting is from the 100 Landscape Variation challenge I did in 2010. I enjoyed this challenge and learned so much from it that I think it is time to repeat it in 2012 but with some twists. I am working on my goals for the new year so I will be giving this idea a lot of thought. In this painting I got the texture by painting over my first layers with acrylic matte medium and adding pastel on top when it was dry. A fun technique!
