Although most of the students in my workshop were working in oils, Priscilla chose to work with pastel pencils. The principles are the same. Mass your shadows, mass your lights relative to your shadows, and you will create an illusion of light every time. Pastel pencils are a great medium. They are forgiving and can be erased. They are easy to store, and the clean up is a snap. It is a great alternative for moms with little kids and limited time for painting.
