“Here Comes The Sun” Pastel Painting Planning
To start every painting I look at the subject / the reference photo and draw at least three options.
I chose this composition: low horizon, amount of sand, directional force as a general guideline.
Next, I create a value drawing using pencil, charcoal, pastel or paint to work out a value map.
Finished painting: After adjustments darkening value of sand foreground. Hope comes in the morning
