This is a portrait drawing of our model at the Thursday evening portrait session last week in Pleasant Grove. Thought I'd give the pastels a go at it this time. The paper is Art Spectrum Colourfix paper. It's a coated paper with a gritty surface for holding pastel pigment. The pastels used were Faber-Castell Polychromos pastels and Conté pastel pencils.
