How to“Here Comes The Sun” Pastel Painting Planning
4 steps
To start every painting I look at the subject / the reference photo and draw at least three options.
1
I chose this composition: low horizon, amount of sand, directional force as a general guideline.
2
Next, I create a value drawing using pencil, charcoal, pastel or paint to work out a value map.
3
Finished painting: After adjustments darkening value of sand foreground. Hope comes in the morning
