ALCOHOL HELPS

...but not the way you might think. I finished a test pastel I've been working on using a technique I saw Australian artist Leesa Padget do on Youtube. Alcohol is used on the pastels in the under painting. I sort of chickened out and didn't go as far as Leesa does, but a good learning experience.

Hey John, did you have fun? :) What a great atmospheric piece, I really like it! I hope you had a nice glass on the side too ;) Leesa

Thanks Leesa...I did have fun but reverted back to old habits at the end. I'll do more on the next one.
