View Full Version : Hi, new here

Hello. I'm new here and new to soft pastels. I'm currently working on my first greyscale pastel piece and would like feedback. Only problem is that I can't seem to post in the WIP forum. Is that normal?

A bit about me...

My name is Jessica. I live in NY with my husband and children. I usually draw using charcoal or graphite and have been teaching my self to paint (both acrylic and oil). Most of my work is realism with some fantasy thrown in.

Not sure if there's really much else to say.

Hi Jess! Welcome to the pastel forum! The place to post your paintings is "The Soft Pastel Studio and Gallery". The other active sub-forum is this one, Pastel Talk," for pastel conversation and questions. All the others sub-forums are archived older threads.

Hope to see your painting soon!

Welcome! If you can do charcoals, I bet you can do pastels as well. Have fun, dont hesitate to ask questions.
