This is the second attempt at this painting. The first one has been painted over, which is quite satisfying as I wasn’t happy with it. This second one is larger and painted on different pastel card. I used Clairefontaine Pastelmat which I am still trying to get to grips with. I did the drawing first then added pastel on top. The ground really grab’s the pastel which is a plus point. However it is not so forgiving when you make mistakes. It is a joy to see children at the beach completely captivated in what they are doing. I hope I captured the mood of the painting.
