I have a couple new drawings to share. :)

The second is with pastels. It's actually the second pastel I drew, I didn't think the first one came out very well. This one I'm very happy with though! I originally thought that colored pencils made sense as a gateway into color, but as it turns out pastel pencils are much easier to use.

Very nicely done; human faces are notoriously difficult to capture well, and you did a bang-up job!

Practice makes perfect! I think in a way, learning to draw is about practiced observation. The more I study faces, the more I see all the lines that make them attractive and unique.

You're focusing in on the visual essentials.

I surprised my parents with this drawing of them for Christmas/their 40th Anniversary. It was a big hit!
