I was really annoyed that I missed blogging on Monday, so I am posting again today to make up for it.
This piece is worked on a ground I made myself. It started off as one of my abstract collages on board, I then applied a mix of pumice powder and acrylic medium to it, to give a key for the pastel.
I forgot to take a photo of the prepared board, so I will do another one tomorrow. I enjoyed working on this surface, even though it was quite rough and wrinkled in places, it gives the pastel a fresco painting look which I like. The painting isn't finished, but I need to buy another fig before I can work on it any further.
