Beach/Ocean Scene in Soft Pastels Tutorial – Melissa Mancuso Art

In this tutorial I’m demonstrating how I drew a beach scene using soft pastels on Pastelmat.

Supplies used:
*Unison soft pastels
*Richeson soft pastels
*Mount Vision soft pastels
*Pastelmat (grey)
*Fingers for blending πŸ™‚

Blick Artist’s Soft Pastels:

I use Pastelmat paper for this drawing, but you could also use any other sanded paper like UArt, Colourfix, or Mi-Teintes Touch. The regular Mi-Teintes can also be used for some lovely pastel work but you won’t get as many layers as you can with sanded papers.

The original of this artwork is available for sale.
