Sunset over the estuary
ArtistIvan Jones Pastel Artist
DescriptionI love sunsets and those over water are particularly appealing. This pastel painting was created from a reference photo taken by Steve Carter and is of the Torridon and Shieldaig river estuary in the western Highlands of Scotland. I had Steve's permission to reproduce this striking scene. The sky looked exactly like this at the time - hard to believe I know! The silhouetted boats add that touch of magic.....
I used, as always, soft pastel (for the background ) and a range of pastel pencils ( details ) on Artspectrum Colourfix paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed painting.
