Dagmar told us about her technique in the #1 Hyperrealism Magazine:
Hyperrealism could be reach with different materials and supports, why do you prefer pastels to realize your artworks?

I prefer working with softpastel because I love the vibrant colors of it. Drawing in black and white with pastel gives a lot of debt. You can achieve amazing effects with pastel, sometimes the face or animal almost becomes 3D. I also love this material because you can create different effects because of the wide range of pastelpaper/undergrounds and using different pastelmaterial (brands of pastelchalc/pastelpencils), so for me it never gets boring. Also the change in technique during drawing is great, you can blend the medium easy, you can work with your fingers and work with the pastelpencils for more detail.
