Finished portrait in pastel pencils on 12″ x 12″ pastel paper.  First time I’ve done white fur so lots of pastel colours used to define the dark areas.  In fact, they were precisely the colours used for highlights on ‘normal’ pieces.  Eventually I used a battery-powered eraser to get back to white paper for the lightest hairs.
