Two weeks ago I participated in a workshop 'pastel on velours'.
I have been drawing (animal)portraits on regular paper, but I heard so many things about pastel on velours that I wanted to try it. And a one-day workshop was perfect to become acquainted with this material.
We were asked to start a sketch at home, so during the workshop no time was lost with sketching.
I loved working with it, it was a complete new experience to me. See the result (so far, it is not finished yet, but I wanted to share it).
