Hello all. Here is my first pastel pencil attempt. I am really enjoying the medium. Tried it several times in the past but could never get any results. Now I am getting it I think and enjoying a lot.

Please give me advice and critique so I can improve my technique. I will continue the layering and post progress.

Thank you...http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/11-May-2017/90561-Untitled-1.jpg

Welcome! You are off to a great start. Yes, layering on paper is similar to mixing colors on a palette. Don't be discouraged, take it slow and enjoy the journey.

Pastel pencils can develop fur textures very well- set an area color, as you have, then build your textures into it.
