3rd attempt at soft pastels
« on: February 08, 2014, 05:13:11 PM »
This is my third try at soft pastels. I was happy with the drawing until I arrived the the foliage for the two foreground trees and the grass in the foreground. Neither of these areas look naturl to me and I'm at a loss on how to achieve a better finish. I stopped working on it because I felt as if I were beginning to overwork and ruin things. Advice is welcome!

Matt, coming from my teacher, I'm really encouraged! Thank you! I'd love to join your live sessions, but family obligations prevent me from doing so. Thank you for archiving them for those of us who can't join you live!
