This week we get to pick what medium we would research. I came across an artist that uses pastels. I thought this might me a very interesting media to try to reproduce digitally. I have not used pastels very much so it don't know how to use it so I will do my best to find out the technics. Pastels have a very strong texture. usuall there is a bit of line work. it looks as though pastels can be layered and it leaves very interesting glimpses to the color underneath. the strokes are not as thick like impasto paint, it is fairly flat with alot of texture.
hear is the blog of Noah Kloceks blog he has many examples of pastels.
