Have started on my interpretation of a scottish landscape in pastel…

Working from an atmospheric photograph I will be posting the stages of creation on my facebook.com/pastelworkinprogress page and keeping things updated on facebook.com/ivanjonesart. Here I am using pastel pencil for the details and working on pastelmat paper…..2015-03-16 18.09.30

    I also do landscapes/horses etc in pastel which might intarest you.
    With Ref to technique I was taught that it doesn’t matter what you use photos,tracing paper,digital,graphs,props etc
    (many famous artists use one or more of these things) ! all that REALLY matters is that you find a way to translate the ‘thing’ you want onto paper,in your case in Pastel,in a satisfactory way.It’s the finished product that matters,not how you achieved it…………good luck

      Cheers Eric. Been away from my blog for a while ( concentrating on facebook and twitter to promote) but appreciate your comments…..I enjoy what I do, as I imagine you do, and as you say as long as people like the end result it does not really matter how we get there! Cheers!
