Soft pastel tips for beginners | Sun ray in a beautiful nature

Hi friends, today I want to show how to draw with soft pastel. Soft pastel is very easy using and realistic effect giving color. If you learn the basic things such as color combination and light and dark effect you can easily draw with soft pastel. So here I am drawing sun ray in a beautiful nature.


Before coming on the steps , I want you to know why I used black sheet for the painting. It is basically a picture of a jungle, so when we see the trees we see the area lighted but the deeper in the jungle u want to see you will see it darker. So for that dark base we are using black sheet.


STEP 1: In the first step we need to draw the base of the jungle. When sun rays falls on the trees it turns into different set of colors. For this I put red, brown, yellow ocher, light yellow from left side to right side and rubbed it for blurriness.


STEP 2: Then draw trees by brown color to the half of the page. For shadow use deep blue and interestingly it will turn into a shadowy black. The green and blue for the leaves of the tree then light green and light yellow for the effect of sun ray coming in. Then add some detail with brown for the stem if the tree. Then further light shade put yellow ocher and light yellow.


STEP 3: This step is basically for beauty of the painting. Here I will draw a big tree for making light more prominent. This tree will be on a shadowy way. So first use red, brown and deep blue for shade. Add details on the stem of the tree, lighted leaves of the tree with Wight.
