Pastel paintings

City edge/Stadkant


City edge in pastels on colored paper. I call the painting “stadkant” in swedish, which in english means selvedge. But in swedish it can also mean city edge.

This painting is not so difficult to achieve. Find a colored paper, some pastel crayons, and start drawing squares in different colors.

Then, you do the same as water mirror. To finish the painting you draw some lines across the water area. Try it if you want, it is fun to paint with pastels.

And if you try, let us know how it goes 🙂

  1. I really like this one. Wish I had some artistic ability with sketching and painting. Always been a bit jealous of my wife in that regard. She loves your work too, by the way.

    1. Thanks. This painting is easy for everyone to do, if you give it a try. I used pastels on colored paper. Squares in different colors and the some lines and dots everywhere. It’s fun!
