Cherry Blossoms in Soft Pastel

Stages of Creating a Soft Pastel painting.

This painting I am doing on Mi-Teites. It is approximately 25 x 20 inch painting. I didn’t photography the first stage of laying a basic background in. In this painting I want to keep the background dreamy, so I placed in blocks of color but no details. I want the main focus on the blossoms with the main focus being drawn down to the main open blossom at bottom left.

The first stage is simply laying in where everything is going, and placing the main color in. I couldn’t help myself though and went to work on the main blossom.

In this photo I show the addition of detail in the blossoms and farther in the branches as well.

I’ll finish adding details into the blossoms, and then do touch up work around the painting. I will be selling fine art prints of this painting. The painting itself may go up for sale. Soft pastel paintings are hard to ship due to the nature of pastel.
