Squirrel Sketch

Squirrel Sketch, 2009
Pastel & colored pencil on Mi-teintes paper, 8 1/2" x 10 1/2"

This sketch was begun as a pastel. After the basic drawing was done in Carb-Othello black pastel pencil, it was finished with colored pencil. The pastel sketch was sprayed with workable fixative to prevent it from too much smudging, and it was finished with Prismacolor colored pencil.

Hi, your squirrel is beautifully done..I like the color you used they blend well together.
I have done color pencils work,but never try them with pastel.
I learned something new today.

Thanks. I'm becoming more interested in multi-media pieces. You can use the strength of each media, sort of the best of all things.
