In class we practiced with three mediums; colored pencil, oil pastel, and chalk pastel. The easiest mediums were colored pencil and chalk pastel because I've worked with them in the past and they are easy to work with. However, the oil pastels were challenging because I've never worked with them before and the texture is hard to work with. For the techniques of each piece, I colored in the direction of the shape and colored lightly at first so I could blend easier. For my next project I plan on using colored pencil.
