Pastel on Velour Paper
As much as I dislike velour paper, I used it this time because because I love painting on it and I am usually pleased with the results, also I needed a quick lift at the time. I don't like velour because it doesn't grip and hold the pastels unless I fix it a lot which is ok I guess but most fixatives will yellow the painting to some degree. In this case I fixed it with a common hair spray which does not yellow near as much as pastel fixitive will.
Spring is here in all its wonderful glory. I love spring light and escpecially early morning light spring light.
If you like this painting here are some others showing the spring light.
