compressed pastel, erasers & kitchen towel

Building on last week's session, we tried a different approach using the same media on half A3 cartridge paper.

This time, using a paper cup as the starting point...
  • cover the paper with a light layer of compressed pastel
  • smooth pastel around the paper with kitchen towel
  • use an eraser as the main drawing tool
  • add more compressed pastel to darker areas
  • smooth, erase & darken as necessary to build a tonal / three dimensional image

The lovely drawings are below.  Well done everyone! 

 I should add, Monica finished early and so drew Derrick's jumper using the same process - lovely!
