Sketching with pastels

Pastel, Plein air, Sketches September 11, 2017

So I decided to combine sketching and pastel.  I went to the local wild life refuge and sketched goats and an alpaca.  I didn’t have any plan in mind except to just try using the pastel sticks to actually draw with them.  I liked how these turned out and I think I will go there more often to try other media and do the same exercises.

PS, the goats were more active and it was like trying to sketch a school of fish.
