Pastel Hearts

Happy Valentines Day! a sketch using both watercolor for the background and pastels for the small candy hearts. I have only used pastels a couple of times and now I know why. I remember these candy hearts from when I was young with the sayings stamped into the surface. Holbein watercolor wash base with pastels that are a combination of Rembrandt sticks and Conte pencils in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.
