pastels on paper
i've had a big box of 'portrait' pastels for ever and i finally got around to messing around with them... what sucks is that while i have a huge selection of flesh tones, there are no other colors, no blues or greens or pinks at all. I've got a box of "starter" pastels too, but they have really harsh greens and reds and oranges, not the best for pairing with the flesh tones. so this looks very boring to me. My cheeks are very pink, but here they are dull, there was a cold blue light coming in the window and i had no way to get that color in here. oh well, it was still kinda fun, even if my eyes does look a little bloody.
