A different kind of pastel background (for a farm fresh bouquet!)

Hi friends! Pastel month continues with another fun project! I used a looser, more open technique for putting in the background so the paper shows more. It’s a loose, painterly background technique for a more casual subject.

Jason and I stopped at a farm stand over the weekend and they had lovely bouquets for sale for $5, I couldn’t resist!

You can see how I painted it in today’s video! Want more soft pastel lessons?
