One of my students sent me this beautiful photograph of seawaves at the shore.

Another student who is new to soft pastels wanted to create a soft pastel painting using the above photograph as a reference. Hence I created a small thumbnail sketch of the same using appropriate colours
and making a few changes whereever required. Did not want the painting to look like a photocopy of the photograph.
size 3.5" X 4.5"
Referring to the above thumbnail sketch and the actual photograph, my another student PRERNA created the soft pastel painting as shown below using her visualisation. She wanted to make a few changes and I felt it was perfectly fine as we all want to paint what we see. I guided her as and when she needed little help.

It was two hours of fun and excitement as the painting took shape slowly on red coloured CANSON mi tentes paper.
