Really nice. I love the golds and purples.
Did you get Uart in Australia?

Thanks guys :)
I wish, Donna - have to get it from the States...

Love the play of light. Well done.

Yeah, I thought as much. I have to get my stuff from the US, too, which was terrific when the $ reached parity and above, but not so much now. :( Really, the selection of pastels and papers - particularly pastels- is really quite limited here. Wish DB would open up-though maybe we don't have the population to support it. Don't they know there are art supply addicts in Australia, too? Looking at this again, I like it even more. Well done.

Oh, Nicole, this is beautiful! You have captured the shadows and light perfectly, especially around her eyes. Itis hard to get pastels in Oz, isn't it? And paper. I have bought online from The Art Shop (with the usual dots and coms and au's) but their stuff from overseas is not cheap. Postage is capped at $9.90 and they've a reasonable range of pastels ... Their service is excellent, just ring if there's a problem with your order and it's fixed pronto!

Jean, I've spent a stupid amount of money at the The Art Shop over the last few years, yes their service is really good, they just don't have some of the supports I like (Uart, Velour, boards, etc.) and it's still cheaper (even with freight and the declining dollar) to get pastels from the States...
Yes, Donna, a DB, a Jerrys or heaven forfend a Dakota would be wonderful over here, but seeing as global giant Amazon has overlooked us as a potential market, I'm not holding out much hope :(
