Tropical beach Pastel Demonstration

  • Artist: Nina Squire
  • Length: 2 mins

I’ve been working on a theme, views I like to be in, it’s been lovely to indulge a few beautiful beach scenes while I’m unable to enjoy a beach walk myself. A friend’s beautiful holiday photos inspired this gorgeous scene. It’s a beach in Kenya and is just the perfect beach view.

I’ve used Faber Castel Pitt Pastel Pencils to draw it out, then built up colour with Unison pastels. I’ve used water to liquify the pastels and a large paint brush. You can wait for it to dry or work into it while wet, it’s personal choice, have a go at both.

If you’re interested in creating perspective in your pastels, look at single point perspective on the internet, that will give you a few tips. I look at angles on the paper, use a pencil to help me see the angle and then recreate that same angle on my pastel.

A good tip is to turn the pastel upside down and look at it to see if you’ve missed anything, comparing it to the photo you then see shapes rather than just the subject.

It’s always good to have break from your work so that you come back to it with fresh eyes. Tea breaks are recommended!
