I did those two just to try some new (for me, of course) supports and pastels. They both done from very same reference picture, but first one in Dry Pastels and the second one - in Oil Pastels.
For first painting I used Colourfix paper, some charcoal, Nuvel Carre pastles from Sakura (48 colors), few Nupastels and small set of 24 Holbeins. Also some pastel pencils where used (Conte, Dervent, Carbotello), mostly it was blue Conte for some corrections with sky color, because I don't have in my Pastels any blues what I would like to use for this purpose. Light blue Conte is just us good us it gets.
The second painting done on similar support with using of Holbein and Neopastel Oil Pastels and finished with Sennelier. To make sky look better I had to use some wash.
I also changed tree on the right and made it into a pine tree, just to have a different object for practice.
I had much more colors used for this painting then for one above, since my collection of good OPs is much better at present moment then what I have in my Dry pastels.
I really can not tell which one I like less or more, they both turned out very different, and it is, probably the best part about it.
