This illustration started out as an IF for the word swept…I decided to finish it with an image that’s been in my head for a while…
and use it for this weeks IF – Launch!
I used PanPastel on mostly the whole illustration, except for the finest details. I painted on sennelier white drawing paper with grain.
I revised this painting a few times, made a few changes here & there. I used PanPastels, working on the new coarse pastelbord, which, held up to lots of layers! After the revisions, I framed it asap, so I could not touch it anymore! (Sometimes, I have a tendency to overwork a painting.) I framed it with a dark hardwood frame, with a double mat.
