I want to show you how I painted “Snow Day”. I really enjoyed this painting of a wolf laying down enjoying the snow. I used grey velour paper as the support and a combination of hard and soft pastels.
I began the painting by drawing with my black hard pastel. I like to have a foundational drawing to build on and to keep me on track. I also added some white highlights. I also began to add some background using my white pastel. We want to create some atmosphere around the wolf to create a 3 dimensional look.
You can see that I have already added the eyes. I like painting them. If they don’t turn out right the painting won’t be a success.
