Today’s post is a pastel painting done on a homemade panel. I started with a sheet of Gatorboard. I toned it with Golden Liquid acrylic in a Payne’s gray. Next, a layer of pumice gel is applied with a 2″ brush. The great thing with these panels, is the texture left behind. The peaks and valleys from the pumice gel allows the tone underneath to show through when a stick of pastel is drawn across. These spots of color gives a nice vibration to the painting.
