How to draw sunset with soft pastel?

If you are interested in classical drawing tools and techniques, try this course and make your own painting with soft pastel! The course is for those, who are already familiar with soft pastel, not a beginner course! 

What do you need for the course?
In the course I've used the following colours for the picture. (FYI: Of course, you don't have to use the same when drawing.)

  • bright red earth, burnt sienna, burnt umber, deep violet, deft blue, ivory black, krapplack, light orange, light oxide red, naples yellow reddish, permanent red 1- pale, portioli red earth, prussian dark green, purple, sky blue

Use a dark blue toned paper, not a white one!

Structure of the course

  • finding the aspect for the composition
  • sketching the horizon
  • develop the picture using dark colours to the brightest ones

Come and join to the course and create amazing classical illustration!
