The foundation to this soft pastel painting is a giclee print on Hahnemuehle Turner paper of a digital art collage.

 

Angelika digitized Darrell’s par fleche and made a digital collage out of the par fleche image. She also changed the colors and size of the par fleche image before she finalized the painting with soft pastels. Please watch You Tube video about the process.
