Pick carefully, only one is the correct key, you get one try…
Done with Sennelier pastels, some W&N watercolors for texture on the background and keys with Faber-Castell Polychromos, just five of them for added challenge.
From Sommarnatt by Hanna Karlzon. Time spent was about 2,5 hours, a quickie.
I started with the background this time, went in with Sennelier pastels in dust form. Then after working that in, did a bit of splattering with watercolors to add some interest to the pastels. It’s subtle but adds an interesting touch I think. The paper is too thin to properly take water so take caution if using water media in this book. And then pencils for the keys themselves.
It would be easier if you have a workable fixative, I don’t. They don’t sell it where I live so I can’t fix pastels down before going in with pencils. Which can lead to a lot of frustration and stress. So I don’t attempt this on bigger and more intricate pieces.
