This is beautiful. The lines remind me of Ingres.

My heartfelt sympathies to Terry and her family. They are still in my thoughts and prayers. xoLiz

Beautiful drawing! I can't wait for the colors to be added to her fabric.

The pencil drawing itself is wonderful. I've not done much in pastel, but I've never transferred the pencil drawing when I did. How do you do that? Is it a rub where it will come out mirror imaged after the transfer?

Thanks, Deb, good question. It helps me to feel more confident if I start with a good drawing. Since I am working on a darkish brown sanded paper, I am using Saral white transfer paper to transfer my drawing to the pastel board. Once it is transferred, if there are any lines that are too harsh, I rub lightly over it with a paper towel to soften it.
