Recently I picked up two sketchbooks with Grey Paper—rather than the plain white paper sketchbooks I normally use for sketching.
I also bought a Faber-Castel pastel pencil set and have been working with both the new sketchbooks and those pencils.
Thought I'd share one of those recent images—a photo study of an Eagle that I started yesterday and finished today.
Although I've used pastel sticks before—the pastel pencils have proved to be a bit more challenging to use. In fact, I used some of my regular pastel sticks to finish this piece off—in part because I was finding it very difficult to get the whites "bright" enough.
