16-05-18 – Peacock Butterfly colour sketch

I’ve been practising a bit more with my pastel pencils today, and finished this colour sketch of a Peacock Butterfly on pastelmat paper. I’m still finding my way with the medium, but I learnt a lot in making this fairly simple piece – certainly more than enough to inspire confidence in progressing onwards with them. It does require a reverse to my normal process of work with graphite which goes from light to dark: with pastels, it’s the other way around. A refreshing change at the very least.
