Step 5: Drawing Process- Further refining of details. This step is the slowest. Checking and checking again, comparing sizes and shapes against one another until I am satisfied that they are correct. I work all around the piece carrying the color throughout. I am thinking very much about contrast and balancing of shapes and pattern, busy areas and open. Texture is also important to me. I want to retain some texture from previous layers and blend others. The layering of pastel can cause a glow- almost a look/feel of "vibration."
