Shimmering Dawn Skyscape
8" x 10" horizontal
Pearlescent Pan Pastels and other Pan Pastels
on Aquabee Hemp Draw multimedia paper
photo reference from DAK723 on WetCanvas
I planned this painting four days ago when I first saw the reference in the October Pastel Spotlight. Theme was "Orange" and the photo's a lot more vivid. I wanted the pearlescent effect, but that lightened it so much it looked more like a dawn to me. The ground is less violet in person, getting the colors adjusted for the sky to look true made it look very violet.
