“A New Horizon”

Inspiration & Technique

Drawn on archival gritted paper which can hold up to 40 layers. Then, layer by layer, I applied soft pastels. To achieve detail. I drew each and every line with soft pastel pencils.

Sunsets in soft pastels is much more challenging than in oil paints. This horizon had a reflection, and I thought the intensity of colors made for an interesting composition.
