This is just a practice piece (thank goodness)...I haven't worked much with pastels and now I know why. They are hard!!!!! I have more on me than on the paper I think. I am not happy with the way this is turning out at all. All muddy, and I've been using workable fixative during the process. I think I need a class if I can find one. I've taken part in some online ones, but I think I need a bricks and mortar type class.
