My version of a demo by Jeremy Ford.

Done on a 12"x9" piece of U-Art 400 Dark. I used Rembrandt artist pastels and some Blicks artist and ArtSpectrum artist pastels and a piece of Blicks hard vine charcoal for the tree and drawing in.



the demo is from his book called "Painting Pastel Landscapes".
feel free to comment and suggest whatever but mind the posting rules thano everyone for looking! I really appreciate it!

I like the simple feeling of movement. It's as if the tree were directing the clouds. The stroke work is lovely.

I haven't tried UArt Dark yet, Jason, but I like the way your colors seem so intense against it. The vine charcoal was a good choice for getting the delicate branches of the tree!

Re: My version of a demo by Jeremy Ford.

I love U-art papers as they are able to stand up to water media and spirits as well! Not to mention durable to erasing and heavy mark making! I too love how the colors really "pop"just a great workhorse of a quality pastel support,(in my opinion)! I love using the soft and hard versions of the vine and willow charcoal by both Blick's and Winsor&Newton for drawing out and instead of using black as the charcoal can be lifted very,very easily by either a kneeded rubber or even the swipe of a finger! Along with the many various values one can get from them. One other thing about the Blick's vine and willow charcoal is they can be easily sharpened in a regular pencil sharpener or in my Tombow pencil type click eraser(not all pieces are the correct diameter to fit but most do it's awesome!!) Only thing is on sanded paper gobbles them up luckily they are relatively cheap. Thanks for commenting it's always appreciated!

The direction of the tree and the clouds are interesting. They look as if they are in opposition with one another. UArt is really great paper!
