I've been really enjoying working with soft pastels lately!! Here's something I made a couple of days ago while watching Alain Picard's new "Still Life" video.

I'm still getting the "feel" of working with soft pastels...and I seem to have a very heavy handed touch. So, I'll be working on softening my approach!! I'm hoping to branch out and try my hand at some portraits of the grandkids one day soon. Fortunately, my good friend Elizabeth Salim (who is brilliantly talented at pastel portraiture) has agreed to teach me this summer!! Can't wait!! Until then I'll keep working with the medium so I can build my confidence and improve my technique!!
