Pastel Crab!

Using pastels is a lot of fun – especially when blending colours and shades together, as the different colours of fine powder run smoothly together with the stroke of a finger. Of course, a huge amount of smudging goes into this type of media, and there is quite a lot of mess as a result! However, I love using pastels, in particular when drawing things such as crabs, where there is a lot of bold, coloured gradients where smudging usually brings a good look. Although, the only down side is, unless you have a pencil pastel, (if that is what it is called) it can be rather difficult to add a lot of detail. Nonetheless, here is another piece for my marine life GCSE project – a crab!
