    Its a really lovely painting Jackie…different style again…did you use Pastelmat as the base?.



    1. Hi Chris yes white Pastelmat. I started with some very loose light tone washes in Indian Inks. Then once dry painted the posts with undiluted wet into wet inks which is the exciting part of the painting as you have very little control. The pigments depending on the colours used react differently with each other and the Pastelmat. Then to give form where wanted I’ve used Faber Castell Pitt Artists Pens which are Indian ink in pen form and lovely soft pastel to make the texture. Love the process I hope it shows.
