paint over pastels


Draw 12-22-2013 2

 

What I am shooting for is a look like the figure is emerging from shadow, as if emerging from tannic swamp water.  No meaning just academic figure work rising from the depth.

This latest test is from a Sunday session with Rembrandt chalk pastels and conte black on toned Canson paper. Then in photoshop painting an oily wet brushy over the highlights and then burn tool the shadows about 70% opacity. I’m pretty happy with the results. I want to get a system going with real paint soon.
