Trying out a different coloured Canson Mi Teintes paper

Of late I have been creating soft pastel paintings on either black or other dark coloured paper.This time I decided to try out beige coloured Canson Mi Tentes paper. This is a scene from Mahableshwar, a hill station close to Mumbai and Pune. The lush greenery, the winding roads, and the beautiful view around is mesmerising.

I have used a white pastel pencil for signature on bottom left of the painting. Last week I picked up few soft pastel KOH-I-NOOR pencils from ART LOUNGE as it was running its annual sale. Sometimes I need to create thin branches in my landscape and I will see if pencils can be of use.

  1. Hi,
    You left a comment on my blog post -
    I do not mind you using my pics for your fine art. Do give credit to me if someone asks about the original snaps that is all :)

    1. Hi Vidya,
      Thanks a lot for the reply. I would love to use your photographs some day and whenever I do that I will definitely mention your name as the photographer. You have captured the beauty of Spiti valley so well.
