Portraits in Pastel Register View Cart

Using a photographic reference, students will develop a portrait drawing using a combination of colored pencil and pastel. The first layer will be done with limited color in colored pencil to secure the drawing and establish the tonal design for the picture. Additional layers will be added with colored pencils and pastels to create realistic skin tones and textures. We will also discuss the differences between direct color and optical color.
