I got new sketchbook some time back and it was acid free paper and specifically for pencils, charcoal, colours pencils, pastels, so I thought ok this is a good option.
with the first mark with pastel on it I realized it had a lot of tooth, it’s going to required plenty of layers but that helps with blending and layering at times but your materials wear out fast with your arm as it takes effort to rub in the pigment into the page.
well..honestly I wasn’t really happy at first. I tried to do something playing safe. I had a concept in mind and this happened..
I know..lady Charlie Chaplin..so disappointing. I gave up.
Sam suggested I keep it aside and work on it later as it still could be saved.
Then today I was a bit emotional..well I am all the time.
So I took out all the pastels and I said..ok now this is going to lead me..enough of playing safe..
and I ended up with this..
I was a bit teary eyed in the end don’t really know why. well, actually I was brimming with anger for some reason throughout this work.
But I was at peace that I didn’t discard it which I was going to do initially.
That’s all for now.
