... this is me.
My first pastels painting! I like it a lot.
It's for my mom, cos she's been bugging my aunt for years to paint her a hippo, and now I did it for her! Yey!!!
Okay, so what I did was stretch some ordinary paper. Then I used watercolour to lay a very rough base colour scheme. Then I used my pastels, putting on layer after layer. And voila!
