Self-portrait in pastel with primaries.

This self-portrait is an exercise of style. A performance demonstrating the tremendous plasticity of pastel; the ability to create all hues and values sought by having on hand only the three primary, blue, red, yellow and white.

 

 

 

Process:


We must feel the amount of each of pastel color to apply - and in what order - that the total overlays gives us the result projected without tiring his paper.

We play with sticks and do not touched with fingers!
