Soft Pastels on Tracing Paper
This is my rendition of Edgar Degas’s “Pink Dancer” which he did with pastels on paper. However, I did mine with my soft chalky pastels on tracing paper. He used this technique often in his studio when he worked on drawings.
I found it interesting and challenging. I often had to blow the excess pastels off of the paper to see the image so I could keep drawing, but it was fun. I used my fingers to smooth some places, too
My drawing has a lot more blue in it than his but I like the way it glows.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
