Soft pastel, Canson paper
This piece is just finished tonight, and none to soon. It will be a Christmas present for a family member. I will be framing it tonight.
I was trying to get the highlights right, and then the back ground to have some interest but nothing that stands out. The flower being the focal point.
I never seem to paint the desert flowers with the traditional pallet. I like to bring out colors that are hidden deep within, and let them shine.
I plan to add two other pieces from the desert here soon.
I like the Canson paper, but I think I will keep trying different types of paper with the soft pastels until I find a perfect fit.
