I was doing this piece of a woman in pastel. And well, I have like 8 pastel colours at the moment. So if you want different colours that takes a whole lot of blending and blending.
Also I wasn’t sure in the beginning where I wanted to take it. As I had more than one idea for it. OR I could have left it raw (which is the first picture- and I liked that a lot too so it was tricky.) In the end I went full ahead but it too more time than most.
