Whenever I've done faces before they've been outlines - no shading. But I've seen so many fabulous faces on blogs shaded with wild colours and looking gorgeous. So here's my first real attempt using oil pastels. The thing I learned was that more colour was better. When I was tentative and only applied a little colour, there were gaps. Once I started to be bolder, the colours started to blend and look better. It's still a little blocky, but over all I'm pleased with it.
