Pastel on paper: 4″ x 6″

I don’t think pastel is for me. I love works that other artists do, but I don’t know about this medium for me. I will keep trying…but after awhile I just get frustrated  with it. I think that I might need to break the piece down more simply, I try to get too detailed. That is one aspect of the watercolor and graphite that I like. The underpainting is just flowing color, but then I can get some detail in with the graphite. I may try to do some watercolor today without the graphite and see how that works out. And, I will consider trying the pastel with more blocks of color and less detail.
