I was asked by PANZ (Pastel Artists of New Zealand) to document my still life process. I chose a still life composition that I took last summer. My partner grows avocados and I love to propagate geraniums, hence the title of this piece. I will share the process once PANZ have published their newsletter.
In the foreground is a version of the still life in gouache which I really enjoyed working on. In the background the original soft pastel painting worked on 300gsm HP Fabriano Artistico paper approximately 490 mm sq.
