Still Life In Progress

Once I have the still life drawn in a nice clean line, I make a copy and print it out in a light blue line. On the reverse of that side smear on some pastel over where my line art is. After I have enough pastel I place it on a mid tone paper (in this case Canson felt grey). I use a dark color pencil and trace over the blue line thus imprinting the pastel on to the mid tone paper. This is drawing the same drawing about 3 times but it allows to have the most clean line drawing on the tinted paper, which is needed to be able to be able to use color pencils most effectively . Thanks for tuning in, catch you on the flip side!
