This is a small subject just to try on pastels. I thought it would be good to know how to use the medium. At the moment I cannot say if I'll use it frequently. I used here light gray Canson pastel paper.
I did the pencil sketch of this shell while watching on Sunday the Australian Open Tennis championship (on TV) between Nadal and Djokovic. Both played amazingly for more than five hours. I am a fanatic tennis fan.
