Painting a Clown in Pastel

These are progress photos of a pastel painting I did using pastel mat for the first time.  I must admit it took a long time to get out of the “ugly” phase but pastel mat does hold a tremendous amount of pastel.  I’m not sure I’m a great fan but I would be willing to try this surface again.  Ruffles 2Ruffles 3ARuffles 3BRuffles final


  1. I love these progression photos- so amazing that one eventually turns into the other!
