Well done Sally and Sharon. I am glad that both of you are getting along with pastels and one can tell how much you are putting an effort looking at your excellent work.  :clap:

Is it my idea or some of us are drawing the hips of the boy very skinny?  ;D

Dear Friends,

I had skipped this class because I did not have a brush. Now I have brush and I had a go. I used Canson Mi Teintes which is 160gr. I used very little water and drained the water with a kitchen roll. However my paper went out of shape after applying the water. I liked this technique and want to use it again. What should I do to stop paper losing its shape? I would be grateful if you comment.

Love

Selen

Very good Selen, maybe a little foliage over the front of the tree would be good. This was a good lesson wasnt it. :clap:

What I have done in the past with buckled paper is lay it on a smooth flat surface, carefully lay a sheet of paper over it and place some heavy books or whatever is handy for a day or two....and voila! flat paper.  O0
Cheers, Val

Very nice work Selen!!

I guess it all depends on how much water the brush is soaked in. Even when you water the pastel sticks, the paper deforms a little.

Nice painting Selen,  :clap: I agree with Sally you should add some leaf over the tree trunk here and there, it will look more natural.

Sounds like the paper is good quality-maybe not as much water next time.
