I had no more pastel paper, however, having used it up in the recent pastel workshop with Cindy Haase.
Of course, that meant I just HAD TO go online to search for some Wallis sanded pastel paper. But, no luck with any of the art suppliers I frequent. So a sale coupon from a local art store necessitated a drive to their store in search of pastel paper. They didn’t have the Wallis paper either (which makes me wonder if something happened in the Pastel World???) but the girl who waited on me sold me some Color Fix sanded paper (which seems somewhat softer to me but that could just be my imagination).
So, finally, photo of onion in hand, I cut and taped my pastel paper and began.
Yikes, this one is on my own – no Cindy to look over my shoulder and make suggestions.
The results follows.
First, I took a photo of an onion with some dark shadows.
