Trying my hand at soft pastels. Apology for the flash dot as I remembered to take a photo after it was framed.

I think more than one of us have done this before... shooting a picture after it's framed. Nice soft textures.... B

Welcome! I'd consider myself fairly new to pastels (less than 1 year), and think your picture is lwell done for a first attempt.
cheers

Beautiful! I'm doing a lot of flowers myself and wish I could do them this loosely.
