Pastel on Paper, 30.5 x 23 cm, 18/12/16

This is a view of the Yang Ming Mountain range in Taipei City, Taiwan. I drew it from the balcony of my flat on a bright sunny day just before sunset. The mountains were very clear on this day and the colours and shadows were changing as the sun started to set adding more warm oranges into the mix. The sky was very clear with just a few clouds floating by. I like to experiment with different mediums and try to learn the unique qualities of each of them. I find pastels are good for blending colours but can also give a heavier effect if left raw and unblended.
