    • Hi Chris,

      It depends. Once a strong base of color is in place, some of the applications are allowed to “sit” without any blending. If colors should have a transition or gradation, then blending is required. You can choose to blend as you apply each color or wait until you have colors in place before blending. It’s up to you. The results will be similar either way.

  1. Really wonderful tutorial. The technique applications were straightforward, particularly about the water reflections & the gnarly tree in the foreground. It was amazing to see the distant trees take shape with the applications of dark blue & yellow. I am slowly getting the hang of pastels. Thank you!
