My artist internet friend Robert Sloan pointed me in the direction of these wonderful lessons on pastels dealing with color and pastel layering. given a few years ago by Colorix... THANK YOU Robert!!!
Both were done, not in soft pastels, but using my crayons..
#12 Neocolor l oil wax crayons.....
#13 Water color crayons Neocolor 11 + Lyra crayons
A5 sketch pad
These were done from a photograph.. which I enhanced further in PS to get more colors... Just a simple red block on two cloths.. one light blue the other pale yellow-green --
After scanning re-checked values and did further tweaking... and re-scanned. Really learned a lot doing these ....have to get used to this new way of thinking!!!
#12 Oil Crayons
#13 Watercolor Crayons
Since I am not using any medium to wet these... wonder if I could use both sets together..would have a wider range of colors!!!!
