Paint Along with Me - Orange Slices - Day Three

A couple quick notes. In a round about way, I found a post from the first time I worked on Pastelmat (the same paper I've RECENTLY fallen in love with).  It was seven years ago. Here's the link.

I'm trying to use only the colors in the NuPastel set of 24. It is difficult to get them OUT of the packaging. While the work is in progress, I leave each one I use tipped up for easy access.


  1. Have you done much under painting on the PastelMat? I love the light scumbbled stroke showing the surface through... Very textured. Would make a wonderful impression of glistening.

  2. I haven't tried under painting with a wet medium on Pastelmat. I agree with your thought about using the paper for glistening but I suspect it isn't a light enough value in this case. Good thought though - I'll use as much of it as I can.
