My name is Benjamin Aeilkema and I’m an illustrator, artist and art teacher from The Netherlands.

I love creating artworks with traditional media and with digital media as well. My favorites are ink, fineliners, watercolor and watercolor pencils, but I am in no way limited to those.

My favorite themes are houses, landscapes and animals, but I like other themes like fantasy and sci-fi and many others as well.

My artworks are often fun, sometimes serious or with a deeper meaning. My love for God is often also expressed in and through art.

For many years I’ve enjoyed creating art, learning many skills and techniques along the way. I often have a personal way of applying these techniques to my artworks.

I love to share m... See full profile

1. Introduction: Welcome to this class. We're going to draw a nature scene. We're going to draw with soft pastels. I'm using soft pastel pencils. Any brand will do some paper that takes soft pastel like mixed media or pastel paper. And I've used some real flowers. And what I've done, I've arranged them a little bit and then play with that arrangement and put that into a beautiful drawing. That is what this class is about to show you how to quickly look at a scene and bring it onto your paper with soft pastel pencils. And I'm going to take you step by step through each flower. Talk about what I see, what I notice on the flower, what I'm drawing, why I'm drawing it in a certain way. How I'm playing with light and shadows, few colors, and then create a nice pleasing scene that doesn't take hours, but just some quick fun with it and showing you how to use pastel pencils in a quick way, in a quick sketch way and create something beautiful of it. All right, the next lesson we'll tell you the materials you can use and then we're going to start drawing together. 2. Materials you need: Welcome to this first lesson. We're going to talk about the materials for this. You need some paper that can take pastel. And I've got here mixed media paper, toned, warm, mix, warm colors by rural towns. And what I'm going to use this, I'm going to use actually discover a nice sanguine column. If you don't have sanguine color, you could create a single one color, which are pastels. Just draw it in, then move your fingers, smear it out so that you get a nice background. You can also use, of course, new pastel paper, like pastel mud or Rembrandt, pastel or Fabriano teach piano as long as it is paper that takes pastels or mixed media paper or real pastel paper. The next thing you're going to need is some pencils. I'm going to use chalk pencils. You could use soft pastel sticks might be a bit trickier. I'm going to use pencils. You could use something like this carbo tell law, which I'm for this one, I'm not going to use put it aside, but instead I'm going to use deterrents. Due and pastel pencils called pastel pencils. Yeah. So when I have a selection of colors and we're going to try and match these colors from the flowers. But if you don't have the same colors, not a problem. The next thing there is a photo. You can pick your own wildlife flowers or just go life on location that is up to you. Filming life and vocation is just a bit tricky. So that's why I've got this. So I made an arrangement with them. The photo is supply too, so you can just use my photo. And that's it for materials while you might need an eraser, I like to use an eraser pencil making it easy. And that's about it. We're not going to use pencils, things like that. Just go straight in, dive into creating this composition. Alright, so let's go to the next lesson. 3. Sketching the Cornflowers: Welcome to the first lesson. We're just going to start. Where are we going to start? It's a good question, isn't? So I have this composition of flowers and I just don't want to spend hours on it, but I want to do it quickly and I want to just give an impression of it. The first thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to get two different color. I'm going to use this color. Makes it saves me creating background using a color. You can use any color you like this, gray in here that could work. I've got some green that would work too. Yellow and a color you like, or create your own backgrounds. But I'm not gonna do that. I'm just going to use this paper and I'm going to need some colors. So I'm just going to pick some colors. I might want to have some yellow. This is a zinc. Yellow. I might want some green. This is a May green, which is a lovely color. Let's see, I need something to match with the SH that could do this. We'll do better. I think that would be an ultramarine for those ones. I actually do leave some whites. See if I can find some whites. Find them later. Let's see, I'm going to start with this one. Let's start with an ultramarine and I'll pick just the collars on Flickr. So let's start with the ultramarine. And I'm gonna do the corn flowers. All right, and we're going to say if since I can't go one-on-one and can be too worried about where I'm going to put everything is going to be a quick sketch with soft pastel. So I'm going to go for this one here. And I'm just going to roughly do its shape. And the devil do already well, for depth-first one, bit to the sides, this one a bit to the side. There you go. Alright, one under it, that one under there. We're going to do basically the same just dashes, giving the impression of a corn flour. Now, she get a lot of Rob Robert only just blow it away. Okay. Okay. That looks nice. There's my first steps. There's pretty much in the middle. Bit higher than that one. There's an nice big corn flour. Try to simulate some of those cone flower petals. And the idea about quick sketching is that actually, I should see. I'm not gonna worry about if it's really totally accurate or not. I just want to quickly create this scene. Now. One on top of it, a bit under an angle, goes up on top of it a little bit. And that's the one. And the last one. We're going to put it in this corner around here, needs to go higher than this one. So let me go up a little bit. And I'm making really short strokes. So instead of accurately drawing, I'm just making short strokes, giving the impression of acorn flour. And that's the idea, what you wanna do a quick sketch with your Pottstown. It's giving the idea of a corn flour. I'm going to go for the volumes and bit stronger. This bit bigger. There you go. I've got some nice cone flowers. Next thing I need some greenish bit towards the olive. What do I have here? Will this work? This is a forest green. Let's give it a try him. You might have different colors. You need a green for the stocks. Let's see. They're having these do you like that pots under it? I'm going to just sketching the pots. Now I might go a bit darker green and this one later on, there's a lot there. Now, the trick is not to go over the previous one, right? And I'm still making little stripes, dashes. And there you go. That's the pots. But I need some darker green. I'm seeing some dark green here. That's the same forest green but a darker tint, right? That's the banner, giving it just a hint of shadow. Later on we're going to do a hint of light. There you go. Nice. Okay, Let's see. We do have some of these stocks to, this one goes all the way down right there. Now you probably notice one thing. I'm not doing a one on one copy exactly. I'm leaving myself some room. So if I want to frame, it, looks nice. Frame. See this one goes. Now this one says find it, that's behind it. Going towards that, but doesn't really matter where it goes. And this one goes right here. And these are actually connected, Diego, this one down here to this one separate, and this one is separate. And we're not having to worry about leaves. So these are, have connected. This is really, that's a loose one indeed. Alright, Okay, I'm missing of my composition. Good. All right, let's get that darker one. And on the edge, I'm giving it a bit of a dark edge. So I've already decided subconsciously that my light comes from the site. Now here in nature, there might be really light, but then you might regard it for now, I'm working on a flat composition, so in a studio so I can decide where the light comes from and we're not. All right. That's it. Okay. Now I'm going to find me a really lighter blue. And this is called Spectrum blue. We might get a light ultramarine blue to, and I'm gonna give this a little bit of hint of light by just on the top and the sides. See adding in a little bit of death. Lighter color here. And just simulating, gotta go this way. And that would be, I'd say, that would pretty much be the cone flowers. We'll do one more thing, kind of find me really dark blue. So I'm gonna go through this stack of things. You have to find a nice dark blue and I've got a Prussian blue. I could do an indigo. This is a lot darker. And I'm going to just on the bottom and on the side. And there you go. See. And in some of that shade and a few more. All right. Now that would be my quickie, corn flowers. All right, that's it. Not for the class, but for the lesson. So I started with the corn flowers next up. Which one should we do? Let's give these guys here, the white ones now I'm going to leave them there behind that. Let's go for the puppies in the next one, the sum poppies on the side here. Let's get damning. And then do these corny flowers. The wild corn, really the grasses specifically, they look like corn, but the grasses, Let's put them in there too. All right, we'll do that in the next lesson. 4. Adding Poppies and some Grass: Welcome to this lesson. We're gonna do the puppies. For the puppies, I want to have an olive green, I had a forest green. Let's see if I can find an olive green. That shouldn't be. We don't want umber. No olive green in here. This is an olive green. That's definitely an olive. I got a light olive green and move the rest of the site and I want a dark screen, so you need to olive greens, a light one and a dark one. That's a tetra factor that's not an olive hears dark olive. There you go. I got to all of us and we'll use those. I'm going to start with light one. I have just a regular olive green and I have a darker olive green. We need those two. And we're gonna do the puppets. Now the property is around here, and as I said, I'm going to keep a little bit of a border. So I might cut this part of to move this one behind there. We can arrange this a little bit. And I'm going to put the puppy right up here. And again with short strokes and dashes. I'm going to draw in that puppy shape. And I'm going to fill it in those lines. And it's a quick sketch. So I don't want to spend countless hours ago. I now want to have a lighter green for the top, and that is, I've got a main green. Alright, got that. A go. Let's get that light. Green, not a dark olive. Put the light of let's color this in a little bit better. And let's follow that one as it makes an interesting bending shape. And I'm trying to bring everything back to this point. So it goes out of this point. And then you see the second one. And what I'm gonna do, it is a loose one, but we're going to just connect it. So I'm going to let that grow out of here. Angle DAC. And that's going to be actually to pop in. And this is a property that is done, that is bloomed. This is a puppy that is going to start. Okay, I'm fitting it in some of those hairs. All right, Now I'm gonna get that very light green. Might add on this side, it's just a bit of shade. There are two, not too much. Okay. Now we're going to get that dark. This is not the die. Yeah, this is the forest green working with the wrong color. I gotta have that olive, okay. But they're close to each other, so that's good. All now I'm going to go for that dark all of this one and adds shade on this side. And a bit carefully on the sides of the staff to here too. Now on the hair on the back. All right. And then there's a puppy down here too. We're going to do that with the light olive green. This one. It's down on the bottom, going here, and ending around here. First drawing in that shape. Going up. This one has a bit of leaves. And I'm giving the impression of the leaves now the curled up already because it has no water, but they should be a bit straighter like this. All right. Now I got it. And there you go. Get me that very light green again at some light on this side here to there a little bit. And now I'm going to get that darker green. And on the opposite side of the light on the hair a little bit. I'm just adding some of that car. There you go. And that adds some dimension to all right. I'm not happy with how that goes. It Harrison stuff. All right, good. Just a quick sketch. Might add a little bit of this color. Give it interesting line. And thicken this a little bit. Okay, Poppy sprite got the puppies. Now I didn't need this. Yellow would do. Or an umber, yellow ocher will do. I'm not sure if I have yellow ocher, I'm probably afraid I have only really yellows. If you have an ocher. I would say use it. And I was kind of interesting color here called Orange Earth. That might actually be close to a yellow ocher color. That's interesting. That's a brown ocher I found on brown are all correct. And a orange Earth, if you have a yellow ocher, use that. I've got an orange Earth and a brown ocher, but it's not brown, it's very light. And this is, this is too much orange Earth probably. And this is too bright. I'm going to go for, Let's go with these three. So if you have yellow ochres, I would use them arrange of yellow ocher. I've got a brown ocher, I've got a orange Earth and another orange light attend and admittance. All right. I'm going with that mid-teens, I'm going to use deadline. Okay. There's one obviously here in just along the side, but I'm going to move that behind here a little bit. And I'm going to draw in. And I want to go behind. So it needs a bit of a body there. Right? And that's that this one is right here when there is nothing yet in between there. So I'm going to just draw it in and draw over it later again. I'm drawing the middle. And now I'm trying to get out of the middle, right? And I'm gonna do that here too little bit. And now there's one down here. So in the middle of these guys, this guy here, right in this middle here, and just draw its middle. And what are the cold helps? I don't know. Right now I'm going to get that different color. The orange Earth, that's probably a darker color. And I'm gonna, on the darker side, add some lines like this. That works well. And I'm going to go for that lighter color and try to add them right there. And let's go with that light color. This one goes pretty straight and let's keep it pretty straight. This 12, and here, 12, this one even as a bit of a leaf. And there we go. I'm going to go for the darkest color. Throw that in here too. At the bottom right. And that would be the next part. Remember, we're doing quick sketches. So we could go really detailed with this would not let us take a light color and a few in the middle. Like that, make it slightly taller. There we go. That looks good, doesn't it? Okay, leaving it for this lesson's essence. Now, we're leaving it for this lesson. We are going for the daisies next. Let's go for the day. All right, well, leaving this or move on to the daisies. See you in the next lesson. 5. Time for Daisies: All right, Welcome to the next lesson. We need a yellow. I've got a yellow, I got a cadmium yellow. I see some yellow little bit. I got to stand up and see what you're seeing. You're seeing a little bit of yellow in it. I'm seeing a little bit of yellow on there. And I'm seeing a lot of white, so I gotta find me a white and I see already a plane white's probably a China. Chinese white, Diego Chinese wide. A wide. I need a nice bright greenish color. Whatever bright, nice greenish color you have. I've got a May green here. A light may green. And when leading a dark green then two. I've got a hookah screen would work for the darker green. Let's go with these colors. White. And if we have white, we can't do colour nuance in the petals. We need sum of Y. Follow. Let's see what are my choices. I don't want that. I don't want to have something that comes close to a caret. Here we go. This is a number. It isn't umber, but it is fairy lights. It's just what we want off-white see a white and white is color. Look at just to bring in some shadow. Okay, let's start with a flower. The flower is behind here. So I'm moving this guy away. For now. You go bye-bye. And let's see, where does the flower now this one gross right around here. So let's pretend actually done one is behind it. But I wanted a bit higher. And I wanted like this. All right, So I played a little bit with it. I'm gonna do this. And I'm going to start with that bottom, but that light green. I'm going to do the base first for this one, the basis here. This one is there. Now, since I moved it down a little bit, this one plate, we're going to put it a bit behind there. That's my base. And while I'm at the base, minus 2, minus, well, get that stock with a little bit of a funny angle down. There you go. Now I'm going to take that yellow because I see yellow at the base. All right, and now I might as well take that dark green on the one side. Playing a little bit with the light and the shadow. There you go. Now I'm going to go with that white starting with those first petals. Kinda make it look like a daisy. And I'm going to let it go behind the corn flour in this case here too. And so that's make sense. Means it disappears a little bit. Go a bit higher. All right, Now I'm gonna get that dark amber or if you have a light gray. And I'm going to bring in some more definite petals at the Parliament bit. Now I'm going to go back to my wife and make a petal of hand. There you go. That's the first one. It's extended and bend it a little bit there. Right there, makes it more interesting day ago and I would be the first one, really nice. The second one is up there, higher here, somewhere here. So I'm going to start with this one with the petals first. And you see something different than I do. So what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna put these pencils down. I'm going to lift it slightly so that I can actually see it. I might want to start with the heart, get that yellow. That same yellow was I used here. Officer corps. Bit of an ellipse. Could enough, right? Now out of here come these petals to the front of the shorter. Again. I got to move up. Getting definitely longer. Let's connect this all bit too dark. Make this slightly bigger. Now, I don't think I do want to go with gray on these ones. I might just leave it like this. All right. I like it like that. Now I just need that light green. And I'm since I moved it a little bit like this, I'm not seeing the down, I'm just seeing the petal. Petal goes here, sorry, petal, the stack. Let me see, follows right here. And comes somewhere here and it has some leaf here, but the leaves are almost like branches with leaves. And on the other side too, behind there. All right, good. Let's do one there too. Let's connect this a little bit, right? And now we've got that other one coming down. Right there. There we are. And we've got a second one is coming out of it. I'm going to move that behind that corn flour Diego and needed yellow on the top. And somewhere it again, but it's still not grown. So the ego. Now I'll pick that darker green and a little bit on the side where light can't reach it to go now shrink that is pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty. All right. That's it. Let's see. This one has some more that is from this one. So let's draw them in the light green. And where do we go? We're going right here. So that would be one. And these are, by the way, the corn flour still, right? Not these. So there are, these are from the corn flour. So then I need to have different wallets do that's due one. While we're at it. Let's turn that corn flour into a daisy. Making it interesting with some color here. Alright, so I'm going back to D, corn flour, corn flour, this one here is having some branches going out of it. And gotta go back to that color I used for that. There was this one, the forest green. This one is that. So I'm gonna that's going right here. I'm going to let it end there. And there is one behind it, but we'll leave that. I'm going to use 21. This one here. And let me look at that, right? That will become flower later, but for now it's more like a pot. Let's go for that darker green color on the sides where there's no lights, day go and I'm going to pick a very light, the same light color I use there. Give it a bit of touch. Light green there. Okay. That's it. We've got the days is done and I corrected a little bit of the flower, the parts I missed. And there were behind here. There's a corn flour twos. You can see, I'm just going to ignore that. I'm pretty happy with this right? Next up. I move this guy around. So I'm going to put that back That's came in front of the Daisy. But what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna move it down here. We do that in the next lesson. I moved it down here. And I'm going to do these two. And then we have one flower left there and some grass. We could do this for now. Let's leave it. Okay, We're going to for now leave it like this. We might do a little bit of lease on this, this one puppy here. And I'm going to get the right colors that all of your screen. Yeah. This is the olive green. Yeah. That is the right car. I'm going to go for two leaves here, one leaf in the back. Now as you can see, just some dashes, some stripes. And that's it. I need that dark. All of this is the dark color. And do the same. And that's it. How about that? Looks good, doesn't it? Alright, next lesson. We're going to add these guys. All right, Good to see you in the next lesson. 6. Drawing the Grasses: Okay, welcome back. These guys, brown, gray. I'm going to get another back. Let's check out. There is some nice color now that the dark color Phyton one that's here, there we go. This probably isn't blue, French gray. Now there's a great French gray they call it. Here's a color I like CPR. Let's go for state. Leah, I got a gray, a French gray, I will say PF and needs some brownish color. Let's check. There should be some brown in it. Let's go for this one. This is a really dark and I'm sorry, appearance, Shanna, very light brown. And I need a dark brown. Still. See do I have a dark brown? I should have one. That's my dark enough. Chocolate. I'm going for chocolate Always good. Chocolate will be my dark brown. I've got here a burn Shanna, that's the light brown, some gray, and I got some operands. So CPS, sorry, the CPM might be too much. Now I'm going to throw out the sepia. I'm going to keep these three colors. A gray, a light brown, so a burnt sienna and a chocolate. Or you could do a dark amber to if you have that one. I'm going to start with the drawing with the burnt sienna to Bernstein. I'm gonna do this guy here. I moved it down. So it has that stock. And that goes. So I'm going to draw it wherever that room here. And I already see this is not a good color because you don't see them switched out for the debt gray rights. Let's go for that gray. I want this to stand out a little bit and that color, I use this to light. So let's see. It's gonna go have all these flowers, sorry, It's grasses. They have little branches of the grass going to one side and I'm just giving an impression of this. All right? And now I'm going to throw in these grasses. All right. How about dance? Let's add one in here. Let's make them a bit longer. And I'm going for that. I'm working with the chocolate. Let's go for that gray. Using that gray, add some color nuances on the bottom. All right, Now I need back that. Burns Shanna and let's see. Now it's not going to work and we're gonna put that one away. I'm going to find myself a lighter color that is probably a brown ocher, but it's a very light one. That's bad. And C i 1, I get him some. All right in here. Just a dash of light in it, giving the idea of light and shadow. But also if you can see that that adds a depth to it, right? I'm keeping these colors. Come back to that chocolate. This is the gray, this was the chocolate. Wanna do this guy here. Let's see what it begins right here. Somewhere. It ends right there. I'm going to let it end there. I'm going to go I'm going to do is like this. And it's standing up a little bit more. Cool down a little bit. And this one has more seats on it. Alright, let's add some at the bottom too. All right, um, let's see. This one is interesting as a couple going the other way, but only a few. Let's add those into. One goes up like that. That makes it a bit more interesting right away to okay. Okay. All right. I'm bringing in that really dark color on the bottom. Or that caret dot is just simulating some depth. And as you can see, that only goes on the bottom. On the side, away from the light, on the bottom here too. And opposite from the light. And now I'm going to bring back the very light color, prominently colored lights and gonads lines to it. And by doing that, I'm adding depth to right away while playing a little bit with light and shadow carefully. Till about there. On the top, some light to write. Add a little bit light in here too. All I have to do that here to give this some little bit of body volume, right? A little bit of light that side. Okay, good. Netstat. All right. We're getting somewhere. Okay, that looks pretty nice, doesn't it? Okay. What do we do next? We're gonna do this last flower in is some very different colors. So first let's see. Yes, I do like this. We're going to add some grass. We're going to go for really the light green, some green May. And what I'm going do, we're going to pretend this is all standing in the grant, so I'm just adding some blades of grass here to basically I'm using It's a grass bit as a failure. Right now that looks way better right away. Okay, let's go for some darker green. Cut the forest green still carefully at just a few extra dark place. And again, that serves only one purpose, bringing in a little bit of a body. I might extend these a little bit. I simply add more grass to the body, sorry, to the bottom of the body to fill this up now, now I'm happy with this. All right, Good. Last one we're gonna do is this part here, that deep purple flower. All right, see you in the next bits. And then we're already calling this done. Okay? See you in the next lesson. 7. Creating the final Flower: All right, Welcome back. We're gonna do the last bit with our pastel pencils. And that is that purple part there. So I need some dark purple. That might be a challenge. I got some here, but definitely isn't this. The right color is called burned carmine, but for my play with that, but I need some fairly deep dark purple and I think that might be a good challenge. So I'm going to need if I don't have it. So if you have a very deep dark purple, yes, please use it. Well, shockingly, not true. These currents don't have a very deep dark purple, only light purples. And that's about it. Imagine God, I think I got over 90 colors. There's a purple but not, not as deepest Taiwan that, that burned karma. And again, I don't want that light on. So I gotta find definitely an really dark blue one. To compensate. There's one here, indigo R1 down with it. And I'm going through, so let's say if you have a deep dark purple, I'm going to switch sets now. I'm not going to use the set. I'm just going to show you carefully, see, if you have a cocktail. There is a nice deep dark purple in this one. See mixing that with a very dark blue, you get a red shade. But I'm not going to do that. Put inside, I'm staying to these. All right, I've got some colors here. I'm going to use for the light, a dark violet, but it's not dark enough. I got an indigo with it and I got some carmine, so I want to try there. So I'm going to start with D. D, the 65 d, which would be the deeper one, the B1, this a burnt carmine. I'm going to try for this, but I need to do the green first and I want to have a bit of a different green for this one so that it really stands out. So let me find an interesting green that's too light here we've got a nice green color. This is a Theta vector. Here's a nice green too. I'm just picking out some colors which I think might look nice, stand out at least a hookah screen, a very light one, and a terre verte inverter to get some contrast in here. Let's see, I'm going to go for the light color first. Yes. That flower is somewhere here. So I'm going to give it that body. But I need to lead it away from I want to make sure I keep that one. So I'm going to go here, It's going to go here. N is going to go outside at a couple of occasions. So I'm going to stick to this. There's 1, 2, 3, there's a fourth one here. I'm going to go for that one. I'm going to switch that to this site. Right now. I'm going to create that body because it's thicker. On one side. It has these flowers on it, on this one, this one on both sides. And I need definitely a body for that one. And let's see This one. Yeah, that will be good. All right. Let me put this aside. I'm not going to do the dark green yet. I'm going to go with the car. Mean, what is it? A, B, this is a burnt car mean the B1. I'm going to bring in these flowers throughout. This color might actually pretty much work on this. Only on one side. These on one side. And again, I'm quick sketching, so I'm giving an impression these are on that side too. And I think I might actually like that. That looks pretty nice. Let's go for that in Diego de opposite side. And on the bottom here, where there's no light. And create. That depth day you go and now we're going to bring in some light. I'm using that file it for you and that's called the dark file it. But as you can see, it gives me the nice impression of some lines here. Okay, good. Right. And now I need a darker green and add that to the stock. And the bottom. Create in here. Just a little bit of body and depth. All right, I like that. Now how about debts? That is nice. That is nice. All right? And if I say that is nice, then I mean prolly that I'm done with it. Well, there's my composition. So going from this and going from there, played a little bit with the colors, a little bit of different arrangements. What I want to do probably on that on top of their you've probably been saying that all the time. Oh man, that Daisy needs some work. So let's do that. Here you go. The daisy needs some work, some green I need. Okay, that looks better. And the rest, I'm just going to leave it like that. Making use of the background looks quite interesting. And I've created a nice wildflower composition with various flowers, giving the impression of the flowers. Let's go for that corn flour here. It bigger. Now I'm doing my little touch ups. Right? Okay. I like that better. Let's say it, right. I'm going to stop here. You can go on for hours. We're not gonna do that. If you want to go beyond this, add some more flowers. There's appear to you of course, but I'm going to stop the lesson here. All right, that is my quick sketch with soft pastels. Very interesting soft pastel pencils. You can just give a quick impression of what you see and just go simplify what you see in basically that is what we're doing. We're simplifying what we see, not accurately, but we're bringing in some light and shadow, some shade, playing with the colors a little bit to create a very interesting composition. Okay, next up, find is the project. See you there. 8. The Project: Welcome to the project of this class. Obviously, what you're gonna do is draw a wildlife. Wildlife, is it a nature scene, wild flowers seeing? You can draw a wildlife s2 if you want to, but that's not what this class was about. All right, so I went from these flowers and brought them onto my paper with soft pastel pencils. And they use pencils on purpose because that makes me go really quick, work really quick. But if you have sticks, you can do a two. I might get a bit rough ER with the sticks, but since you don't have the nice points on the sticks, but as you see, my points are not pointed point. It was if you go point-to-point in a problem with that is that you kind of wanna do details because you get a nice sharp point. I got a bit of a blunt point that makes me work a bit quicker and I'm forcing myself to work as quick as possible. And if I wouldn't talk all the time, of course, this would go a lot quicker to right now. That is dead for yeah, for the project is to use my supplies, photograph or go out, find your own flowers, make an arrangement of them, photograph them and make from the photograph and arrangement, but just do a quick sketch with soft pastels. And remember you don't want to go accurate. Do you want to go more quick, even leave out some of the details, leave out some of the clutter that is here. I see that a bit less cluttered side, you get a bit of a different scene. I had fun doing this. I showed you just some quick scales and enjoy them. Just go out, be brave. Go as quick as you can, and I'm looking forward to what you will create.
