This guy was the emcee for the Pow Wow - boy was he great!

Im using the home made gesso panel and trying to be a little painterly.
I am especially happy with the paint stripes on his face!
I made up my own colors as the camera 's color are too bizarre to copy.
Also the harder pastels seem to work better on this board. The softer pastel starts to look like loose skin on the canvas. Its fun playing with the texture of the canvas - you can treat the pastel like paint strokes

Hey thanks for looking!

This is very painterly! Nicely done! Are you saying your NuPastels worked better on this support?
