For this picture I wanted to work in a looser style to really focus on colour, reflections and light. I used soft pastel on Pastelmat and used the properties of the pastel to create the layers and the textures. Pastel is a brilliant, versatile medium allowing some areas to be blocked in and others to be built up, creating glazes and layers. I used a limited colour palette which then makes the face of the swan really stand out.
