Walktrough soft pastels - bear portrait by Bisanti Walktrough soft pastels - bear portrait by Bisanti
Step by step illustration of my pastels techniques for this painting

My process could be summarize as follows:

1. Sketch
2. Transfer the sketch to a pastel card
3. Define all the darker area
4. Add small layers of base color (blocked in process)
5. Refine the dark value with thin layer
6. Work the highlight with thin layer
7. Add base color (with slightly different value)

Then redo steps 5 to 7 until you are happy with the results. I prefer to finish with the highlight, as pastels are pure pigment colors.

Be careful to work with small touches. With pastels, you can only add layers according to the capacity of absorbing pigments of your paper (with pastel card, I can add around 30 layers, with velours paper, I am limited to 15-20 layers)
