|'The Red Tree' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis sold|
This week I want to focus on the color red. I love painting red trees. I have a trick to help make red foliage glow with light. I will share it in another post this week. It helps to have some good red pastels though.
|A set of 5 red pastels by Mount Vision|
I'd like to share another option for great pastels that won't break the bank. Mount Vision Pastels. The handmade pastels are a great value. They are nice and big. I can easily cut them into thirds to distribute among my pastel boxes. The are richly pigmented and a medium soft. They really are great workhorse pastels. You can get a box of 25 reds and pinks or if you just want to try them out you can get this small 5 piece red sampler.
