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. . .
