|'A Gentle Breeze' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Join me today for a step by step demo in pictures of today's daily painting. I am working on an 8x10 piece of tan Canson Mi-Teintes paper. I begin with a dry wash underpainting using 3 values of pink. I establish the dark shapes first. I then paint the sky. I continue building the painting from big shapes of green down to the details of the flowers and grasses. I spray the grass a few times with workable fixative to create texture.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting these poppies and I hope you enjoy the process through my photos.
