    SUE, you certainly know how to push us out of our comfort zone! Fabulous tutorial of the ballerina.
    Used @mi-Tientes touch as it was the only light grey I had. Wasn’t too keen as the pastel pencil seemed to rub straight off.
    I’m going to try this tutorial again on pastelmat to see if I can get it better. And oh those hands …. 😂.
    Thanks again Sue!

    I really enjoyed doing this and found the layering of different colours to build the skin tone was a useful lesson, more satisfying than just reaching for a ready made skin tone. I used Faber Castell Pitt pastels and Stabilo CarbOthello pencils for the skin and Unison stick pastels for the background. For me I found the background was more difficult than the ballerina because I’ve always been more comfortable with tight detail, too much freedom frightens me, I want to keep reigning it in. But it’s good to keep challenging yourself. On reflection I feel as though I may have overworked the background, something for me to consider for next time. Thank you Sue for an excellent tutorial, loved it.
