A Blue Streak

A smooth sky demo in my class at the Fruitlands Museum this week. I started the process with a watercolor under painting, then blended the pastel pigment with isolation piping before adding the final light layers of color. Thank you Sharron K. for providing the reference photo.

Nestled
Pastel 8 x 10
