The Wave, Study and Studio Painting, Pastel

The first image is my study of the Wave. I started the painting using a discarded piece of cardboard. I prepared it with a  layer of gesso, this enables the pastel to adhere to the surface. My idea was to be less precious about the painting. I enjoyed it so much that the painting started to work out. I then went in search of more archival quality support and progressed onto the much larger second painting.
