Woodland Ramble - hedgehog exploring
ArtistIvan Jones Pastel Artist
DescriptionWith my next exhibition coming up next month, I thought I would create another hedgehog pastel artwork as they have always been a popular subject, especially in my home county of rural Herefordshire.
The reference photo for the hedgehog was taken by David Jones at the Malvern Show a few years ago. I replaced the boot (see reference photo above) with a tree trunk, taken by me in the field behind our home.
I really enjoyed creating this detailed pastel artwork using soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum Colourfix pastel paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed pastel painting of this very appealing hedgehog.
