Step 5-Sheltie portrait in progress


Now that I have picked out all of the correct colors of pastel pencils to render the fur, I make sure to keep them separate from the rest! There is nothing more frustrating than accidentally mixing your usable colors and then trying to figure out again which ones worked for your painting. I sometimes also write down the number and brand just in case they do get mixed up. With over 500 pastel pencils at my disposal, it quickly becomes apparent why one should make a habit of it.
