Re: New Pastels - experiment - Mitten for Natalie - work in progress


I thought you all might like to see a work in progress of the pastels, as they seem to start off looking very odd and when I do them I always think "hmmm not sure this is ever going to come together" and then it does seem to be ok in the end!!! lol

I will keep you updated Donna, no more on this little kitty tonight, as I am working some more of Fran's horse If I can get a good picture of him I will post up an update (in a new thread) the last few photos I took today of him came out orange !!! arrggghhh
I have got some pencil work here that i will take photo's of and post to show you that i did at college(non animal though) and have other pastel work but at my mums so i'll have to try and find some out when i'm next up. I did a drawing of Frank Bruno in conte crayon which is like white pastel I sold the drawing but have a photo of it on somewhere. I have never bought many pastels only the odd ones as I had loads from school , I was wondering where you got yours from as If I do some more drawing i'm gonna need some. The pastels i used weren't too hard but weren't soft either. I've never used oil pastels.

Deester, I would love to see more of your work, animals or not

The pastels I purchased were a set of 72 Jaxells from a company called Great Art. www.greatart.co.uk apparently they are one of the largest Art suppliers in the UK.
