Pastel Paintings

While trying to tidy up my messy workspace the other day, I came across this old box of pastels and decided to try them out.
They work perfectly for the texture of the animal fur, but you do need to layer the colours and it is quite time consuming. I find it very therapeutic, almost like knitting a stitch at a time, drawing in a hair at a time! This one still needs a lot of work, there's a lot of paper to cover!
