I just watched the video, and it is great to see you do a drawing from start to finish! I just took my first beginning class for pastels (after not taking any classes in over 30 years in art), and the instructor showed 5 pastel techniques, said a bit about composition, movement etc, then told us to practice these elements. I had no idea how to start, or what to draw. It is good to see how one starts, and progresses. I just sat and looked at the paper, had no idea where to start. Made a mess, but I guess we start somewhere. Thanks!
