More pastels, was really trying to play with the sky on this one. Sky may be the next challenge.
Decided a needed to try to use the pastel chalk Nicky bought me a long time ago. Found a photograph on the internet using my iPhone, here is my attempt.
There are so many things I’d like to try with the pastels, I think I’ll practice with flowers for a while (like I’m sticking with portraits with the pencils).
Well, now I’ve had my first attempt at two new things. ‘Still life’ & ‘colour’, I’m not happy AT all.
I shall return to black, white and grey tomorrow. As I’ve said before, I think I’ll get proportion and shade eventually but colour will escape me for a long time.
Chatting with someone on Twitter last night got me excited so I decided to give the big man a try in my quest to learn to draw. I found an image on the internet and ‘copied’ it with it on the screen.
After my earlier attempts of the day which were very quick cartoon type sketches I spent a bit more time on this. It fails to my eye mostly where I expected, the eyes, or one eye in particular in this case.
