    Exquisite! I just love the colour and the intensity!


  • Thanks Jen, this was my first major attempt at pastels and I chose them for that very reason……….their vivid colour and intensity :)

    How modest of you to refer to this as an “attempt” … it is actually a masterpiece.

    Absolutely incredible! I’m a pastel painter, and I’m not sure how you achieved this! Wow!

  • Thanx Alice. Im not sure either! I used a full sheet of blue colourfix pastel paper. I work on the flat, not on an easel. I don’t do all over layers, rather I work from one end to another, or one corner to another. A technique I use with my pencil work and I just tried it with pastels this time. I love the intensity of colour in pastels.

    I really love this, especially the light you have coming through the petals. This is really food for my eyes, and it’s delicious!
