Have you ever used chalk pastels? I recently purchased a small set of soft pastels and thought I would give them a try. Here's a couple of pictures that I have done.
I found the pictures on the internet, printed them in a 5 x 7 size and used colored tracing paper to outline the objects. I have a couple of hard bristle brushes that I used to blend the chalks with. I really like the way they turned out.
Since I have completed these I have found Pastel Paper in various colors that I plan on using for my next picture. I don't know yet what it will be, I just have to wait for the spark to hit me. Have a good one!
