Empty Boat Color Study IX Pastel Painting Poucher


"Empty Boat Study IX"
Soft Pastel on Wallis 5x7"
Available through Julie Heller East Gallery


Continuing on with the color studies, I enjoyed doing this high key piece. I did not use an underpainting on this one, keeping it light using the white paper. And no hard pastels here just the super soft Senneliers and Schminkes.

Empty Boat Color Study VII Pastel Painting by Poucher


"Empty Boat Study VII"
Soft Pastel on Wallis Museum Grade paper 5x7"

This little study went on quite the journey today. It began with a purple and yellow wet pastel underpainting. Working with a limited palette it went from strong colors to muted grays. It was scrubbed, wiped off, blended, glazed, hatched and somehow in the end returned to looking very similar to the original empty boat. I did enjoy the journey.
Available in my Daily Painters Gallery.

Second in a series of color studies. This piece has a cool red pastel underpainting rather than my usual cool pinks. I use hard pastels and a disposable spongy paint brush to scrub in the underpainting.

Color Studies of Empty Boat

"Empty Boat III"
Soft Pastel Color Study 5x7"
SOLD

In November I seem to have a need to play with color. I plan on doing about a dozen of these boats with different colors, underpaintings, techniques, etc. I will be offering them in borderless 5x7" glass clip frames so they could be hung as is or easily slipped into a standard 5x7" frame. They will be priced at just $100 and if you purchase one on the first day that I offer it on Daily Painters the shipping will be free.
