It's that time of year. The leaves are falling, and the air is getting crisp and cool. I created this quick sketch in approximately five minutes using soft pastels on purple construction paper during one of my art classes this week.
Soft pastels are easy to blend, and you can keep building details with every layer that you place on the paper. I'm not a huge fan of pastels; however, I'm always amazed at how quickly one can create a piece of artwork using this medium.
