“I prefer to use smaller or finer tools in my art because I enjoy working in a precise manner. With the guidance of this course, I began to learn how to use the larger pastels to create a self-portrait through building layers of color and using broader strokes rather than constantly penciling in fine lines to create an accurate likeness.
This course helped me explore the use of colors I wouldn’t normally consider for a portrait, and I was able to grow more comfortable with experimenting with more interesting and vibrant hues. Overall, creating a self portrait through this course allowed me to produce a colorful piece that stands out from my other works.”
