Late Afternoon Light, 12"x19", pastel on panel

Late Afternoon Light, 12x12

 Today’s post is a pastel painting done on a homemade panel.  I started with a sheet of Gatorboard.  I toned it with Golden Liquid acrylic in a Payne’s gray.  Next, a layer of  pumice gel is applied with a 2″ brush.  The great thing with these panels, is the texture left behind.  The peaks and valleys from the pumice gel allows the tone underneath to show through when a stick of pastel is drawn across.  These spots of color gives a nice vibration to the painting.
