Self-portrait, soft pastel
Well, moving forward with the color theme, I decided to pull out my pastels. These pastels are awesome to work with (they’re Sennelier pastels a l’ecu) but they are, as the box states, soft. As with many of my art supplies, I have a ton of materials that I’ve purchased but never used (or rather, fully exploited to their maximum potential) because I either didn’t (and may still not) know how to use them fully, or for fear that I would “waste” the materials while experimenting, and some of the materials were quite costly. Fear and the creative process simply do not mix. Sometimes you’ve just gotta jump in, head first.
