I've never really done pastels before, or none that I liked at least. They never really worked for me. But recently I got the Art of Pixar book that was full of concept art of a lot of Pixar movies. They were beautiful pieces, and a lot of them were pastel! I had never really liked pastel pieces until I saw these. It got me thinking about trying it. Then I also saw some pieces by Degas. The ballerina ones, those were also pastel. So I tried it. And I very pleased with it, though I did it pretty quick. I think I'm going to do more.
