Pastel painting of a young wild eyed bull calf. 43cm x 63cm

Pastel over a watercolour underpainting on Colourfix Suede paper with an extra layer of Colourfix primer.
A combination of pastel pencils and soft pastels was used to do this work. I am still experimenting with different papers and techniques, and trying to build up a bigger range of pastels, but until I do, I have to work with what I have at present.

  • Thanks Norah……I have to experiment to be able to learn. It is also more fun!
