Ballerina in Soft Pastels
I drew this ballerina with my soft pastels the other night. I used a gray pastel paper just to see how these colors would show up. I didn’t draw her right leg correctly, but for some reason I just couldn’t manage to shape it right! I also couldn’t get her arms to show up as much as I wanted to.
I felt frustrated with how chalky these soft pastels are! I am not sure I like them much. Oil pastels are easier to draw with for me, but I will practice some more with the soft ones. I may try using them with charcoal. I don’t feel a great need to “master” the medium of pastels, but these were given to me from a friend, so I had to try them out. (She doesn’t care for pastels at all, so I know she will understand!) 😉
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

I don’t think I could get the legs right either, but you’re brave to try and it didn’t turn out too badly.
