Pastel Paintings

by Ian Fletcher

back to Showcase of Pastel Artists

Ian is an artist from Cape Town in South Africa, he kindly sent in an article about how to use water with pastels.  Now he shares some of his paintings, so all are here on this page.  The first three are painting using his water technique, the fourth one has an undercoat of acrylic phthalo blue. Old Brown has acrylic Mars Brown as an undercoat and the last one has Periwinkle blue acrylic undercoat.

These undercoats work well with these lovely pastel paintings.
