Another artist who works in Pastel gave me the advice of taking a 2D object and painting it life size. Well I grabbed the closest thing around, taped it to the wall and started working. It was a good exercise and I'm happy with what I came up with. It isn't quite life-size, about half an inch off but I like it for some reason. I think I'll do more and try to put more of an artistic spin on them. Enjoy! p.s. I got my Pastel Journal, yay!
