  1. Very effective. Do you use water with the pastels. I am amazed at the brilliant colors.

    • Thanks. So this pastel is painted on Uart black sanded paper. There’s no underpainting on this surface and no water is applied. Underpaintings are washed with alcohol or water but not in this case.

  2. It is very harmonious and I really like the reflection of the color effects.

  3. I am wondering if this page is still working? No new challenges?

  4. Dear Shirley, I am so sorry for the delay. I shall update the page with a new challenge soon. Thank you for checking!
