I finally finished up these drawings of Miss Natasha Enquist from our Halloween Women’s Art Salon.
I was scared to work on big drawings with pastels, so I worked on them to procrastinate when I was even more scared of finishing the pastel portrait of Iris!
They’re much too big for my scanner, so I had to photograph them.
Turns out photographing pastels is hard! I guess the dust sticks and grease sticks create a lot of surface specularity.
I hope you get the idea anyway. I am pleased with them, and working on them moved me along the road of using pastels and gave me enough confidence to finish the picture of Iris. Which is much closer to a true pastel painting.
