Drawing with Pastels

Leave a comment

Tonight at class I decided to try my first drawing with pastels. I was going to use coloured pencils, and I started a drawing but it didn’t really inspire me. It was a still life set up by the teacher but it wasn’t quite what I liked. So I came up with an idea for a drawing using pastels and the teacher was able to assist me with some flowers to draw.

I arrived home tonight and in the yellow light at home it is actually starting to look like the actual thing I am drawing. So feeling reasonably pleased so far. I will post the picture when it is complete – not ready to share yet.
