pastel sketch

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.
