I apply the base color, spray, next layer, spray, so on and so forth. Just like a creating a painting with paint and brushes. Same, start from back and work your way to the foreground. Obiously the top layer will be hair, fine details, and highlights.
Your pastel should look like a regular painting when completed.
Oil pastels can be melted with paint thinner to give it the watercolor look also. Just experiment with different types of pastels and have fun.
It's always a good day when you wake up, don't sweat the small stuff.
