Heres the same technique I used on Yellow Feather painting, but with a twist… also learned this twist many years ago… for those of you peers who follow my work and ask how I create and what techniques I use… This time instead of st"arting with pastel… start with acrylic (heavy) put it on with a putty knife…make it thick if need be add gels…then as it dries apply pastel on and around use (pastel pencils) so you can control closely the image you have in your mind… (but don’t fix the pastels) as in Yellow Feather painting… Then finish off with crayons… (using your imagination and passion) melting them into the acrylic and pastels with a hair dryer… (I use sassoon 1875)… I sometimes use a professional heat gun for board work where I want to melt house paint (yes I use house paint sometimes) into crayons (another technique) more compilcated then this one…lol add some more acrylic on details you want to shine… or not good luck and have fun… Don’t forget to size the paper before you begin…, and if you use canvas don’t forget to size it with gesso… takes a little practice to master…. funny like that lol
