One of the more difficult (i.e. time consuming and frustrating) things for me to render with pastel are things with straight lines and edges. Give me trees, rocks, flesh and fabric (without pattern) any day. But man made objects, gadgets, machinery etc. are not my favorites. So I need to muster up my determination to render the motorcycle that I, for what ever reason, chose to feature so prominently in this piece. I think the end result will be well worth the agony.
