Playing with Pebbles, Commission in Progress

I have begun a pastel painting on pastel clayboard by Ampersand. After drawing the image on paper, I transfer the image onto the board. The pastel board is a clay and gesso coated hardboard panel with a granular textured surface comparable to a sanded pastel paper except more durable and more versatile. I chose a warm neutral "sand" color to contrast with the cool blues in the reference photo.
