Hi guys ! Although the New Year has already passed, but I can not help sharing this picture. This is New Year's Cat.
I drew it with pastel pencils. Sometimes I paint with different materials, but I prefer watercolors anyway.
Now I want for those who want to try to draw with pastel pencils, I'll write advantages and disadvantages, because it's more difficult to draw than simple pencils.
As a rule, pastels are crayons, but there are also pastel pencils.
If you have ever painted, or tried to draw with pastels, you must have faced the problem of displaying small details of the picture. If you paint a landscape, or still life, then these drawings do not particularly require detailed elaboration. But, if you draw, for example, a portrait, then you can not do without detail. Of course, you can draw and crayons, but still, pastel pencils will cope with the task of detailing the picture much better.
Also, pastel pencils have a second, important advantage over the crayons - they do not make your hands dirty.
Well, the third point, what exactly pencils are for, will be important for those who just love to draw and hold pencils in their hands. To such, fans of a pencil, I also concern.
