October Draw Along WIPs by pbird12 October Draw Along WIPs by pbird12
This months #Draw-Along WIP1

WIP2 - another hour or so. This will be my last WIP for this one :heart:

Thought I'd give pastels a try for the second time, I hope number 2 is not a pastel disaster like my first attempt :la:

2 hours so far (not including my sketch) - who knows how many more, I'm not used to pastels, but they're fast!!!

I'll put all credits in the final drawing and as always will add more WIPs to this one as I go along :heart:

Pastels look really hard to use... how do you get any kind of accuracy with them?! I can never seem to manage it!

I struggle with pastels too, but love the way they look. This one turned out the best so far though. The tiny details I got by either snapping the pastel to make a sharp edge, but the really tiny ones, I used colour pencils over the top :D I'm a cheat lol

Ahhh.. this is looking great Paula! I love the softness and dream-like texture-- reminds me of charcoal. Can't wait to see it finished! :D
