I think I have found a new art medium that is just as much fun as drawing with graphite. I was looking for another art medium where I can work with colors. Something that I could cover the large areas of paper. Quickly and easily. PASTELS!
I was looking online and found an inexpensive set of pastels. I am a person who firmly believes “you get what you paid for”, but I found a really good deal on a set of 24 Prismacolor Nupastel sticks for under $12.
So, I gave them a try. All I can say is Wow!
I worked on layering the colors. I actually went from light to dark values on this apple and then applied some white for the highlights.
Does this look familiar?
Remember I had taken a picture of a still life from class (drawing explorations)? I have been using it when I practice with different art mediums.
I had an enjoyable time using the Nupastels. More to come!
Paper used: Kona toned paper (11″ x 14″)
