We are busy ‘Polishing Pastels’ at the moment, which means we are bringing in a picture we feel we need to fine tune in some way.
‘Moonscape’ needs a bit more work, I can see where now after taking a photo- its funny how looking at our work through a different medium can give us a fresh set of eyes!!
The top right hand corner of this picture actually looks green, I didn’t use green at all in this pastel!
So back to the drawing board, to ‘fix’ this, while being careful not to ‘over fix’ it!!
5 Things I looked for when I reexamined this picture-
1-balance- is the horizon line in the right place
2-is the sky reflected correctly in the water below
3-is the land to the right in proportion so it it looks like land
4-I had to fix the cloud in the left hand sky- it wasn’t the ‘right’ shape, it ‘looked wrong’
5- is it ‘over done’- keeping it lose, gives a better ‘look’
Thanks for reading, see you next time!
