New medium : Pastels

A good friend of mine recently showed me how to get started with using pastels. She also gave some  basic painting pointers to keep in mind and sent me home with some paper so that I have something to use while I waited for my order to arrive. (Yes, I have some lovely friends and I am very grateful.)

I should probably sleep but I was really itching to try out the medium, so here is one.

I am looking forward to spending the day tomorrow doing art and I might do more pastel still lives tomorrow. Goodnight and bye for now.
