Ok, so I haven’t used pastel in oh-so-many years, and I bought a small box the other week and began some small pieces. None of them looked very fine, so I put them aside and took out some acrylics. I wondered how the pastels would behave on top of paint, and started to draw and blend.

I think they look not too bad for a first go really. Ok, there isn’t much detail but the blending is so much better than pastel on paper itself, I think. And given this was done very quickly without much planning, I think the greens look quite nice on the blue paint.
