I worked on this pastel painting tonight - just finished it actually! It took about 3 hours of consistent work, and once 'scrapping' incident. When I 100% don't like the painting, I take an old credit-like card, and scrap all the pastel off that I am able to, and restart. I am still always surprised with the end results. When I work, my face is 'right-up-in-there' in my work, and so when I finally step back, I am (usually) pleasantly surprised. These photos were just taken with my cell phone, so they're not super - I'll be able to take better pictures when I have some daylight.
