ACEO (2.5x3.5") watercolor paper with new box of 12 Carbothello Stabilio pastel pencils. (Wanted to see if this small box would be adequate for sketching away from home.) Looks like it's OK...even for one who thinks she needs every set of pastel pencils to make one drawing:) Thanks, Li for a great set of images. Needed practice in sketching people. Love your cave.

There is a nice sense of him being in the fresh air and water. This is a lovely, loose airy portrait and so small! Great work Paula!
Nice sketch. Good use of a limited number of pencils.

Only 12 pastel pencils? I must say I love my big box of Carbothellos, but I must also admit that I never use about 30 pencils/colors. :-).
Lovely portrait sketch!
