I used chalk pastel in ArtRage 4.5 and Intuos 5. I have never used pastel before. This is a detail from Degas' work, "The Pink Dancers..." It is on coarse weave with a purple blue canvas color. I used felt pen for the details i.e. on the face. Degas like Milne rarely put details on faces to limit the visual weight. This was quite an experience as I mainly use oil. I sold my figurative work almost daily over the holidays and I wanted to try something else. Of course I need to work on my landscapes. All comments and help would be appreciated. Thanks.

This is very nice but I think that green is way too bright.

And the OCD side of me wants to clean up that little squiggle at the bottom of the skirt. :lol:
