AEDM (Day 20) - Conte Girl

Do you read the Artist Daily newsletter?  Not only is it informative but from time to time they feature free offers from their Trusted Partners.  Today I received two of the new Conte pastel pencils that will be released in 2013.
Please note that I am ALWAYS a sucker for a letter that starts with "Dear Artist" - 
Anyhoo - I decided to play with them within about 30 minutes of opening the envelope and ended up with a girl that looks, according to Caleb, as if "she spent too long in the taffy pulling machine".  Yes, her head is long and narrow -  
but look what happens if you  take a picture from another angle- just right!!  I'm not familiar with Conte pencil and it is pretty chalky but was fun to work with and seems to be pretty secure with a spray or two of Workable Fixative. . .

She's very pretty! I just used a Conte pencil for the first time the other day, and I love it! It's soft enough to smudge with your finger, but stays in place when you add other wet media. I love the white dots and lines on this girl!
