Here are some critters I created from Carla Sonheim's latest book, Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals. I've experimented with pastels before and not liked them (messy) but last week at my art classes I gave them another bash and was really impressed with the effect they give when blended, plus suited my short attention span perfectly because they made it really easy to complete a project quickly. I whipped these four critters up this afternoon using either the sidewalk crack method or start with an eye trick! In about 45 minutes I completed all four. I picked up the Pastels from TYPO.
