Day 219 and new pastels

by Sketchy on the Detail

Trying out my new conté pastels today, on some A3 watercolour paper that I inked up yesterday. So naturally there is pastel dust everywhere. I did two, one didn’t turn out quite as I hoped, I’m not used to sketching at A3 (it’s A5 or A0) so the proportions were skewy. This is one is of the flowers that I bought last week and that are still going strong. Not quite right, but much better than the other one.
