Exercise 7: Dark Strokes
Lets use yellow Canson paper for the next mountain exercise!
Now try some mountains.
Black firstů.let some of the paper sparkle through
Purple over the top,
then blue over that
and finally, a red line on the shore for warm contrast.
In some of my paintings, I use a metallic black that sparkles, adding life to
the dark areas
An idea to try at home. The "sprinkle" technique
To do this, scrap some shaving off the pastel with a palate knife, then press
them on the paper
Blend in green, blue/green, blue/green for sky
