I started this sketch weeks ago after I posted the night scene reference photo. I thought I should post it because I've found that action can give me a little kick start. I used my daughters Oil pastels for this. I found them to be cumbersome to work with because I have trouble blending them. I know I'm not using the right paper or technique, but I much prefer traditional pastels. I plan to pick some up this weekend. I don't know what happened to the huge stash of pastels I had years ago.I used to keep them in a little brief case. Must have been tossed out when we moved. That surprises me because I hate throwing out art supplies more than I hate throwing out old shoes. One might think I grew up in the depression era the way I save old crap....but I digress.
