I haven't had much time for art, but have done some sketching. The hands & feet are just pencil sketches in my sketch book (HB pencil). The self-portrait (a struggle in front of the mirror) was done with Chinese White Derwent pastel pencil on black paper. My son says it's out of proportion, face too long, but I like the distortion. Reminds me of other artists that distort deliberately because they feel like it, not because they are just learning.
