|The Cascade | Pastel | 7 x 5|
Process: The substrate is Wallis Belgian Mist paper. No need for underpainting as the color of the paper provided all that was needed. Dark to lights, then a black and a charcoal Nupastel to carve the rock faces. The falling water goes in last. Pastels are ideally suited for painting cascading water; I can think of no other medium that so easily skips across while letting the under colors peak through.
