i am not experienced in working with
pastels. while taking misty mawn's face to face
online workshop, i attempted a portrait with pastels
on pastel paper. here is the results. no matter how much pastel
i added, it just blew off of the paper. i was stumped as to
how to get a more intense color from the pastel paper which
textured in such a way that the pastel does not sink into the
recessed grooves. i asked what to do on the online class forum.
i was told to add pastels more heavily and rub with my fingers.
aha! i will let you know how that turns out in a future post.
