New to Pastels
Hi everyone! I am just getting started with pastels, along with a few other random mediums that I have decided I wanted to learn. I've always done graphite/charcoal work, so delving into color has been a huge learning curve for me!
I wanted to share the few pastel pieces that I've had the chance to actually complete. They're all done with pan pastels and CarbOthello pastel pencils. The horse was my first attempt, then the woman, and then the Jack Russell portrait. I really need more work on getting the hang of showing more fur detail, or maybe not worrying so much about all the individual hair, but rather doing better color gradients to make it seem like there is hair, etc.
I'd love to have any and all feedback. Any tips/tricks that you may have would be highly appreciated. Thanks so much everyone!
