Pastel over paint

Under-painting in water based paint (acrylic wash or watercolour) 
then over-painting in pastel. This simple technique is shown 
below in four stages: first picture - draw in the outlines, not details 
in light pencil then paint in a wash the first petal; second picture - 
apply first layers of pastel; third picture - build up layers of pastels 
until desired effect achieved; fourth picture - repeat steps 1-3 for 
each remaining petal and rest of painting to finish. This technique 
can of course be applied to any subject to equally great effect.
