Got a  new book this week by Jane Davenport called 'Drawing and painting beautiful faces' and it is fabulous - it's a mixed-media portrait workshop and looks like being a lot of fun!
On these pieces I used water colour pencils and Portfolio pastels.
I have been trying out my new Portfolio water soluble oil pastels and struggling a bit with them blending - I'm sure its down to me probably using the wrong type of surface. I get confused with 'rough, not, cold and hot pressed papers' LOL I seem to have everything but 'hot pressed' which I believe is smooth - so must get some of that soon and hope that helps.
