Pastel Field, 8x10", pastel on panel, by Jeffrey Smith

Still more longing for spring…  Here in Minnesota, we have had a few days with above normal temperatures.  Then, things dipped back down into the single digits.

This little painting was done a hand made pastel panel.  I started with a piece of Masonite.  I prepped it with 2 layers of acrylic gesso.  Then, I painted the surface the bright orange liquid acrylics. That’s what you see in the lower right hand corner of the painting.  Finally, I painted on a layer of Golden Acrylic fine pumice gel.  You need to thin it with a bit of water to expose the pumice particles.  If it’s done with a bristle brush, it gives a wonderful, random, surface to paint into.
