Kestrel in Pastel

My first real pastel painting outside of the one workshop I took. This was Sennelier* soft pastel on the smooth side of Canson Mi-Tientes paper* (white).

This was the first blockin of color.

Then I used some alcohol and a brush to form the pastels into a wash for the underpainting. I let that dry and built up the color with more dry pastel.

This is what I ended up with at the end.
