Hi Mr Wilmington, thanks for your kind remark. I am not sure how long it took me as I did it over 3 days. It was about 5 or 6 hours in total.

Welcome to the forum.

I think the artist that did this painting has not been on the forum for a long time.

I find the best way to get started in a new art medium is to watch YouTube videos on the subject. I do oil painting and have found a real wealth of knowledge on the internet.

Please tell us about yourself. You can open a thread in the category "Introductions". There is some very helpful information on how to do things in the category "Getting Started With ArtistForum.com ".

I agree with TerryCurley about youtube, it is one of the best ways to learn, that and just doing it, practice, practice and more practice. I use pastels and pastel pencils, and also cotton buds to blend along with my finger and paint brushes. Also a scrap piece of paper so you can rest your hand on it to stop you from smudging the work. If you get something wrong then don't panic, just rework it. Also use pastel paper. I hope that this helps you.
