pastel pomegranate

close up
I bought a small set of Sennelier pastels and some new CarbOthello pastel pencils to try, and I love them both!  The pencils color nicely on this Canson pastel paper.  Nice and gritty, scratchy feel like I sometimes get with the Conte pastel pencils.  And the Sennelier are super colorful, a little goes a long way. I love how you can lightly layer the color, and 'see through' it.
I just played around making little sketches on the paper of this pomegranate.   The pastel erases well too, I never knew that.   I cut a small peice of a hard eraser with a kraft knife and used it's nice edge to erase with.
