I have been doing pastel portraits for Christmas cash... NOT NEARLY enough of either.
Because I have been doing oils for a couple of months, I felt really shakey so I took the sticks today and just did heads.
No fancy watercolor paper or underpainting.
Canson 12x16's.

I only took Nupastels, those paper chalks and my Holbein 48 pack.
Really freeing and I miss them.

I love your hatching/X-hatching technique. I'm currently trying that style of painting but I think my problem (by comparing my stuff to yours) is that I'm just drawing a bunch of lines together whereas you seem to be scribbling loosely. Maybe that's what I need to do is loosen up????? Thanks for sharing, DJ. You've inspired me.

Warmest,
Laura
