Two Hundred and Two
An exploration with Chalk Pastels, not my favorite material but the softness is quite nice. I suppose my biggest issue with the material is what to do with the image afterwards. They are so delicate and smudge so easily. I’ll use a fixative on in soon but still it does not ever seem stable enough for me. The image itself I love. I love the high intensity areas and in contrast with the less developed sections.
Two Hundred and Three!
I still like the first image better as an end result but I love the yellow-orange section of this image as well as the point where it moves from high impact color out to faint pencil lines.
