Drawing for Fun with Black, White, Brown and Grey Conte Pastels on Tan Paper

Using pastel pencils is very different from colored pencils.

Pastels are much softer, can cover an area much faster, and are super dusty. They do not hold a point as long as a colored pencil, and need to be sharpened often. They can create very painterly looks with a more controlled feel.

In the video below I am coloring this printed ink image of a hummingbird using only four colors. Please feel free to download and work along with me if you like. Enjoy!
