Image of the Week

Here is the next 'Image of the Week'. This is pastels on Fisher 400 sanded paper using a watercolour wash under the pastel in the sky area. It worked very well. I have called it 'Dreamchaser' and Measures 20" x 16" framed size
The original is for sale, if anyone is interested please contact me for more details.


  1. Beautiful dynamic painting Bev.
    Fisher 400 is so versatile isn't it ... for wet and dry mediums.

  2. a lovely, beautiful action-painting ;)
    I still haven't found out working on Fisher 400 ;)

  3. Thanks Sue, Yes Fisher is my favourite for pastels, I want to try wetting the pastels instead of using watercolours....on my to do list. (Which grows ever longer)

    Thanks Lene, You really must try Fisher 400, I am sure you will enjoy it, you can really lay on the pastel and it hold lots of layers so the tooth doesn't get filled in quickly. It is also quite forgiving in that mistakes can be brushed off and redone (if you are careful).
