I have already posted couple of Leh Ladakh paintings done in water colours, referring to photographs given by a very dear friend of mine. This is the last one which I wanted to do and I decided to do it in soft pastels. I have used a red coloured Fabriano paper for the same and mostly KOH-I-NOOR soft pastels.
While I use the photograph as a reference I do make a few changes in the composition and alter a few elements to suit my requirements. Unlike still life paintings, in landscapes I have to deal with the foreground, middle distance and the background. It is always a great learning experience, no matter what the subject is.
Next I am working on landscapes in charcoal and will be posting the images soon.
