Jackie, thanks so much for this simple 1.2.3. step demonstration to painting with pastels.

I'm one of those who fails to do a thumbnail sketch 'most' of the time...and your demo shows how valuable a tool it can be. Especially to the plein air painter!

I know all of us will benefit from this demo! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to provide it for us!!

For those who haven't read the demo...here's the link!

My pleasure Carly. It is a bit basic, but it might help someone somewhere!

Keep up those thumbnail sketches, now.....:evil:

Sure might. Like me. Here. ;)

For some reason tone values are something I've always had trouble seeing and reproducing, so in the past, I've tended to "draw" with pastels rather than paint. The approach in this little article will be a real help to me as I try to expand my boundaries!

Thank you!
