This is so exciting to find this site! I've had an on-going love affair with pastel for about 4 years! Enjoyed all the postings, especially those from "sandyartist". You are a fun group! As for pastel pencils, I have used them to execute a work (entirely with pencils) and it is possible. I've even won some local awards with such works. I have every pastel pencil brand on the market. My favorite is Creatacolor--try it, you'll love it, too. Great for detail-freaks like me---coming from colored pencil, this is no surprise. Pastel is just TOO cool, isn't it!

How do I find that on-line art studio in
still life by Rod Webb? Any info on that
would be greatly appreciated. I am a sub-
novice (with computers), so talk to me as
if I were a "dummy" please! Thanks!

Welcome AA!!
It so nice to have another pastel artist on board. I too do entire paintings in pastel pencil...and love it! Since I render subjects in detail....it is great for me.
Thanks for the Mag address..I will be checking into that ASAP..
Look forward to seeing more of you!!
