Today I finished this new Pastel, made on 50 x 70 cm sanded paper. It is made after a photo by a friend. I was quite happy with the result, untill I gave it Fixative, which made it more grainy than I like. I know this can be a problem, if you want to make the pigment stick to the paper and it seems, I have this problem every now and then. Quite frustrating, because this took me days to paint and it is pretty large too. Oh well. On a distance you dont see the grain. Only if you study the image very close.
