This is small landscape sketch..5x7
A while back I received some new
extra soft pastels and I did this small
landscape to see how they worked.
I like them but they crumble real easy.
I used a photo as reference.
C&C welcome

Nice one, Perry! Looks like you managed to paint with those extra soft pastels real well. Are these the same ones you use for your still life paintings?

Thanks Donna
On my still life paintings I use a lot of hard pastels
and some of these soft ones for final layers.
I have more control with the hard ones.
The soft ones are a set of 30 landscape half sticks
so there are limited options for colors and I would have
to do a lot of layering and blending to achieve certain colors.
I need a bigger set.:)

Pretty! I love the colors, and your shadows are really well done. :)
