First Try With Pastels

Alright everyone, I'm getting ready to walk out the door on my way to the craft store for a few supplies. Then I'm spending a bit of my afternoon tackling pastels.
Hopefully will have something to post soon!

Awesome! Can't wait to see what you create!

What kind of pastel are you getting? My sister bought me an oil pastel set a couple of months back, I have never done pastel of any kind before, I tried to draw still life, blending it does not come easy, I do not know anything about oil pastel, but I am sure the chalk version I can do something with. what ever you do have fun with it, I am sure that your first will be a resounding success, can't wait to see it.

I got the regular soft/chalk pastels. I've been working on something the past few days when I have a moment here and there. I'll have to take a few pics and post.
Terminator-I have an oil set too. I worked with them for about an hour and stopped. I agree, not very easy to blend!

I am legally blind and I can not see unless I am really really close and blending the oil pastel for me makes it even more difficult, I can do oil painting with relative ease much more so than charcoal drawings, but I continue to work with charcoal and I have done several charcoal drawings that are comproble to my portrait oil paintings, I do not have a website of my own as of yet which precludes me from posting my works, but as soon as I can figure that out I would like to post my works for your critiquing pleasure, should I am able to post them please give me your honest opinion no flowers are neccessary as I am looking to get honest opinions so that I can determine if I need to improve on my works. I have only been painting in under one year, I started in 2009 but I only painted I think two canvases for 2010 because it was suggested to me that I should try other mediums for my art works and that is just what I am doing now I have done a couple of oil pastel it was hard for me to work with this particular medium but I think I want to try out the chalk pastel instead, I know that if I can do charcoal which is not much of a difference from the chalk pastel I think I just might be able to do something with them, and the next medium I would like to try as well will be that of watercolor and acylic paints.

Terminator - When you open up a section to read a thread, on the left side right about the threads is a button that says "New thread"


To post pictures, you can create a Photobucket - http://photobucket.com/ - account and upload them there. If you need help with that you can sure send me a Private Message and I would be happy to help you through the steps of getting pictures posted over here.

Thanks TLA for explaining that =) I hadn't gotten to it yet.
Alrighty here is the WIP.
Keep in mind...this is my first go 'round.
It's more of an abstract piece.
