Really wonderful drawing! I'm currently trying my first soft pastel drawing, and I'm using black pastel paper. I think maybe I'm using the wrong side, I chose the rough side because I thought it would grab the colour better, but I'm just left with a bunch of big holes. I see such wonderful works that others do with this medium, but I obviously have a LOT to learn about using it.

Also, I have powder everywhere. Is that normal?

Thank you! :thanks: I use pastelmat paper. Maybe you need to add more layers of blended pigment or maybe it's just the wrong paper you are using. The rough side is usually the right one.
That's the spirit, don't surrender! Check out the videos on youtube (link in description)

Yes, powder is habitual. Blow the excess

Thank you, I will persevere. Do you mind if I ask you what kind of fixative you use? Do you use a workable one? I read that can sometimes change the colour.

When I work in graphite and coloured pencil I often spray on a workable fixative partway through to help prevent smudging, but I'm wondering if this is a good idea with soft pastel?

For pastel I don't personally use fixative because that reason. They can turn dim and I don't recommend it.

For graphite and charcoal I use Talens fixative and other ones but always try the fixative in scrap creations so you can check the result before going for real. Hope it helps!:thumbsup:
