A Snow Scene in Pastels
Snow scenes can be rather cold, but those of us who had expected a piece in cool blues and whites were in for a surprise. Using his own Fisher 400 pastel sand paper, Tim began by covering the paper with a vibrant wash of indian and acrylic inks in red, yellow and blue to under-paint the picture.
He then worked over that using bright, soft pastels to build the picture, which was still very warm-toned.
Suddenly, like a magician, he added in the dark shadows and white snow highlights to produce a snowy village, sparkling in the winter sunshine
