This is going to be beautiful! You have terrific drawing skills and that boat looks wonderful already. What kind of paper are you using?

It´s a regular Canson paper for pastel.

excellent thus far !! ... what size is it? ... and which pastels are you using?

Thank you all for all the posts.
This is a 55cm x 45cm painting. I´m using Derwent pastel pencils and also Cretacolor fineart pastels for the smaller details. In the end of the process I´ll use some Rembrandt bars to work the light and dark on some parts of the painting.
