Demo of Lady Bug part 1

This my preliminary drawing of "Bug". I was doing a demo of Pan Pastels for the Austin Pastel Society this last week-end. This is a far as I got.

I put the background in with cotton balls and used Q-tips to apply the color for the fur. The lighting in the building was a huge challenge for me and I had a hard time evaluating how much color I was putting down. When I got home I could see I had more work to do.

I will past the finished work tomorrow.

  1. Hey Jan! What a great likeness of Ladybug--with her winning smile. Wonderful work--can't wait to see the finished piece. Also, really enjoyed seeing the block prints. Glad to see you working in that medium again. Best, skr
