Candle on gold leaf base - pastel


I am still doing pastel color studies for the cloth on my grisaille but I think I like doing cloth now. I was quite pleased with the gold look on the base of the candle.

Very, very pretty Mary. You have captured the reflective quality of the gold surface beautifully. I also am enjoying the richness you are creating in the fabric. Good to know you are enjoying it.

Thank you Robin, your comment is important to me. :)

Just right up my alley the bluesy/purple look. Very nice on the candle and base.

The gold is so realistic Mary. Very lovely. I love the fabric, it looks quite touchable.

The colors are lovely. I look forward to seeing your next study. Patience seems necessary when working with pastels.

I think you caught the reflective quality of the surface very well and the lushness of the cloth.

Mary said...

Juana, thank you for your visit. Yest I am learning pastel does require quite a bit of patience.

Sue, thank you! This color hopefully, will work as one of the ones on the grisaille
