Lady of the Mountain
One of the trickier supports for me is suede board. It can sometimes be a challenge because pastel does not adhere very well to the suede.
I like to lay it flat to get the maximum layers of pastel that I want. If I feel the knap is too full I will turn it over and tap it very lightly.
After laying it back flat I may need to tweak or highlight a few places until I'm satisfied with the painting. At that point I will lay the glass directly on top of the painting.
Archival tape will be used to completely surround the glass and painting sealing them together to prevent any movement. The painting is then framed without using a mat.
There are many different way to create pastel paintings. This is just one of the road maps I use to get to where I want to go.
