Adventures with soft pastels

I don’t normally use any art medium with a propensity to cause a mess (at least outside of a studio setting).  Doing so gives me flashbacks to an…umm…incident…my sister and I had involving khaki pants, a white comforter, and our mother’s beige rug. We weren’t even kids at the time which is pretty sad.  I’ve gotten over that little trauma for a little while by trying out soft pastels.  Working with something this chalky is excellent for study and the beginner because you absolutely can.not get carried away with menial details.  These were a joy to use despite the constant threat of getting those colored bits all over the white carpet.

  1. obviously like your web site but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.

    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth on the other hand
    I’ll certainly come again again.
