Cowboy Mike

These NuPastels are fun to work with. They are considerably less tenacious than Condé crayons, but really allow much more buffing and erasing techniques. I picked up a handful of colors along with a Strathmore assorted colors pastel pad, and played around a little in Saturday's figure drawing session. Naked Mike dressed as a cowboy for our 20 minute sitting, so that gave me lots of edges and textures to play with. It took me a while to get the tooling right on the NuPastel sticks but after that it was smooth sailing.
