We will then look at shading and highlighting techniques. One lesson will focus on landscapes and we will look at creating the sky, water, mountains in the distance using pastels. The following day will look at creating animals, specifically a tiger using pastels thinking about creating a fur effect and creating finer details such as an eye.
