Pastel Demo by USA artist Barbara Jaenicke

Interesting Pastel Demo by USA artist Barbara Jaenicke

Below are some progression shots of my demo, starting with the block-in using about 6 pastels (Nupastels and Rembrandts) then washed down with alcohol and a bristle brush. As I progressed, I added details in "large chunks" before deciding toward the end what few details needed to be even smaller, and continually checked my values for accuracy.
