One of our members Alice has completed our 5 Horses Landscape tutorial and would like to know advice on which frame to use for the picture.

For this picture I would use a light mount such as Ivory and frame the picture in a basic dark wooden frame with a gilt line. I wouldn’t recommend using a gilt frame itself for the picture.

I always recommend double mounting your pastel pencil pictures because it pushes the picture further away from the glass. You could double mount the picture in all ivory or use ivory just on the outer mount and a dark colour on the inside – Russian green is a good colour.

I feel these choices would enhance the picture further. If you are buying ready made mounts then you may only be able to find an all ivory mount which is fine.
