texture and pastels

 

Finding the pastels somewhat “flat” so experimented with adding some texture.  First I covered the offwhite UART grit paper with all shades of red and orange and yellow pastel and painted over with mat gel medium.  this created quite a thick covering that showed up all the brush marks.  When completely drying painted over the pastels, like the affect.  Will continue experimenting on the texture front and build up more layers using acrylic paint as the underpainting.
