Every so often I have tried pastels again but been frustrated by the lack of detail I could achieve when compared to coloured pencil and acrylic.
However I wanted to do a picture complete with background for my last submission for the Society of Feline Artists exhibition and decided to give pastel a try. The reason being I can work faster in pastel than anything else and for the background I had in mind the ability to blend was ideal.
This time I used the Fisher pastel paper and was delighted with how much detail it was possible to achieve.
Hopefully the background will go as smoothly as the head.
