116. After Paul Cezanne: Detail from Still Life Flowers in a Vase (1888)

(After Paul Cezanne)
Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Watersoluble Wax Pastels and
Pilot DR 05 Pigment Pen on Goldline Sketchbook Paper, 2.25" x 2.25"

Hi Everyone, Apologies for not posting for a few days. Have I told you how much I love Neocolor II wax pastels? They are yummy - look at the depth of colour! Another good thing about them is that you are allowed to use them in the national galleries if you use them dry. You can wet them with a brush later - either at home or in the cafe!

This detail is of the rose and carnation at the extreme left of the original painting; can you see them? I drew the outline lightly in pencil, softened it all with a wash brush then, when it had dried, went back in with the pastels. I had to straighten the 'wonky' edges by making a black ink border - LOL! (Paul Cezanne's original painting is below.)

The last day of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 challenge will be tomorrow and I'm looking forward to seeing all your beautiful collages. xx

Original painting by Paul Cezanne

"When the colour achieves richness, the form attains its fulness also."
