Pastel and Watercolor for Day Twenty

8x8" pastel and watercolor on paper

This was done on a pastel paper called Matboard, it comes in several colors but I used white. It is great for taking underpaintings like watercolor. I started with a loose painting of the vase and flowers with watercolor, then waited for it to dry and applied the pastel leaving some of the underpainting showing through. Since I love watercolor and pastel it was great working with them both in one piece. 


  1. Beautiful colors, love this combination.

  2. Oh this is so gorgeous! I love the blues, the sketchy lines, the palette is wonderful, and the background is a perfect compliment!
