Day one at the pastel workshop ("Basic Color Intensive") with Kitty Wallis. I feel so lucky to be working with this world class artist! Our first exercise is to take a pastel and make a mark on a sheet of Belgian Mist Wallis Paper. Then, try to match that mark with another pastel from a different color family. It is not as easy as it looks! Good matches are revealed when you squint at the pairs and the line between them becomes less distinct. You can tell that I'm having trouble with this exercise!
