This is a new painting using a new surface for me. Pastelmat is a lovely new paper from France with a smooth surface for fine lines but can hold multiple layers of pastel. This offers
more options than Canson Mi Tientes which I usually use. As usual, I work out my composition in fine black and white lines.
As you can see, color is being added, but I’m still working with Conte pastel pencils. I want the the path to be the strongest image in this piece.
As you can see, blues, yellows and purples have been added and the path is starting to take shape.
This is the finished work, Footsteps # 12. I LOVE this new paper.
