|'Reverie' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis |
I decided it was time to revisit the wet underpainting with my weekly pastel classes. We started with watercolor. What a fun change of pace! I was reminded at the importance of practice. Any new (or rarely used) technique will feel strange at first. It isn't always easy to get the desired results.
Sometimes it is good to practice just the underpainting technique....not to even worry about the pastel application. Do underpainting after underpainting until it feels comfortable. The more you do the more you learn about what works and what doesn't.
