Amazing! I particularly love the way you have incorporated the colour of the paper into the end product

Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

Hi Patrick, amazing work. Can you tell me what pastels and paper you used?

I've done one oil paint portrait. Do you find pastels an easier medium than oils?

Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

Amrit, thank you. I gravitate to drawing tools so my work with pastels and scratchboard are a natural fit for me. I struggle with oils because I struggle with brushes

I used Art Spectrum Colourfix for this and an assortment of all types of pastels.

Re: Old man, WIP in Pastel

Wonderful portrait Patrick! So alive! I enjoyed your last comment. I'm used to seeing your scratchboard work. I paint in oils but I find myself using scratchboard techniques with my brushes all the time.
