Getting back into my soft pastels and just absolutely loving the results. Trying to learn how to paint pretty - no, no, - beautiful ladies!
So this one is actually darker than painted because I sprayed it with permanent fixative hoping that the pastels would not fade out. Unfortunately the fixative makes the painting darker than originally painted. I later read in the Pastel Journal never, never, ever use fixatives . . . . I think that may have just been a personal opinion because later I read yeah, use them . . . . just saying.
