View Full Version : Result of Rod's pastel lesson

Well, I hope I did this correctly...!
This painting is what I did with Rod's lesson in pastels. Thanks so much Rod. So glad the pastel lessons are finally happening. I thought the lesson was well put together and easy to follow. My piece was done on 8x10 light gray Windberg sanded pastel paper. It's the first time that I've used sanded paper and I love it. It handles beautfully. Though I've experimented with pastels several times over the years, I thought they just weren't for me. I purchased several different types and brands of paper this time, and it's made a world of difference. I'd like to hear from others with pastel experience. And if anyone has struggled with pastels, please try Rod's lesson and sanded paper!

Nice job on all of the fruit! The colors give the painting a very nice feeling.

The bowl and the banana on the cloth are not anchored and seem to be floating as the shadows are off. There would not be a shadow under the bowl in front since that's where the light source is, and the banana seems to have the light coming from behind.
