Color one shoe at a time using the cadmium red pastel stick. Move across the shoe from left to right (or right to left if you are left-handed) to prevent unwanted smudging. Keep the crayon marks loose; the tone will be established later by blending with your fingertips. Blow excess pastel powder away from the drawing (blowing from above the red shoe): the powder marks the paper, producing a faint red glow around the shoes.
