Seems if I am not doing birds, I am doing faces. Here is a Sunday afternoon sketch in pastel pencil.
This sketchbook paper didn’t really have enough “tooth” to hold layers of pastel so I was rubbing the pastel in to the point of making my fingers raw making it overly blended (I know I shouldn’t use my fingers, toxic pigments and all, I did switch to a stump after a while…), but the scan made the image a bit more grainy than the original.
I hope you all have a great holiday tomorrow. Don’t labor too much!
