Love your ducks!

Do you like the Clairefontaine pastelmat? Do you use soft pastels on it as well?

Thank you everyone for you kind comments.

Judi1957 I love pastelmat and I use it quite a lot. Yes I use soft pastels on it most of the time. In fact I only used pencils on this painting because it is small and they gave me more control with the detail and blending. I only used the pastel pencils to blend the colours, no finger smudging at all.

I am also trying other sanded papers too and I like them also. I have tried Art Spectrum colourfix and I like that, I am using some UArt 400 at the moment and so far I like that, I also have some Mi-Teintes Touch but haven't tried that yet.

As a whole, I prefer the sanded papers although I still use Ingres or Mi-Teintes. depending upon the type of picture I am painting.

I love the feeling of "drawing" in this. So refreshing. Very nice.
