52-Week Illustration Challenge: Week 8

Week 8: Pastel

Sturt's Desert Pea (Alice Springs, N.T., Australia)

I have never used pastels to create a whole picture before. When I saw this week's topic I knew that I wanted to challenge myself and keep my skills growing. So I chose the medium of pastel rather than pastel colours. I used many techniques that I learnt from the tutorials for pencil drawings; blending using a blending stump and adding colour to make sure to fill the paper tooth with pigment all the while trying not the burnish the paper.

See the 52-week Illustration Challenge page for more information about this art work that I have created.
