painting the “Wizard of Oz”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This shows the steps I took in painting the Wizard of Oz trick or treaters !     I began with my basic sketch- on pastel paper.  I use all soft chalk pastels and pencils for the entire picture.    As you can see, I put in an under coat of color –  and then progress to more layers –  and ending with finishing highlights !   The leaves were my final step-  and really brought the picture all together for me them an outdoor setting.  I love to add the fun colors of fall, and it is just in time for halloween!    Hope you enjoy this cute idea !
