Challenging Pastel Colors

Pastel colors or crayon colors is challenging since the medium is mixed and blended directly applied on the working surface, and unlike paint, colors cannot be tested on a palette before applying to the surface. Pastel errors cannot be covered the way a paint. So, the error can be painted out. Experimentation with the pastel medium or crayon on a small scale in order to learn various techniques gives the user a better command over a larger composition. So, it is better to learn techniques before using pastel colors.

I have found mistakes to be easily erasable in pastel, simply by blending any errors into the background, but then again I don't mind if my colors are not as bright as is humanly possible, I prefer a more gritty realism.
