Birch Trees - Pastel on Uart paper with dark pastel and alcohol underpainting.
Birch Trees - Pastel from today's pastel class with Barbara Jaenicke. For this painting we did a alcohol wash. The shapes were sketch and values were shaded. The alcohol wash was painted on and then dried. The pastels were applied to the underpainting. This one needs some more work. It was an interesting composition and one I will want to repaint.
