Ruby

Ahhh! This is more like it. Back to the pastel .. and a bit of collage for added interest. This pastel is quite small 10cm x 15cm approx. I've missed being away from pastel whilst I've been trying to get myself 'painting' more. With this one I did the sketch and then tried to very gently use fixative on it - so as not to lose too much of the light details. Some did disappear and I put them back a bit later. I'm not sure about the gold bits at the top .. but once they are stuck on they are there to stay. I'm going to try to do more of these small pastels - they don't take long to do.
