Pastel on Canson Mi-Teinte ‘Tex’ Paper (Cobalt Blue) – 75cm x 45cm approx.
An evening scene just as the sun has disappeared behind the hills.
Painted predominantly with Rusty Tone handmade pastels which were a recent birthday present. These pastels are manufactured by Australian RedBubbler Leigh Rust, and I found them great to use, especially for layering.
This is a similar scene to one I did for a painting which I donated to an auction awhile ago, except that version was half the size and I used Colourfix Gold paper. I think the blue paper worked better, and I am very happy with the result.
