Been dying to try pastels. This is my first attempt.
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Do I have the idea....I'm still trying to figure this out...
I find it SO difficult for some reason....

you have the idea for chalk pastel, for oil I would want to see more pigment.

ya, I think there would be a LOT more pigment in oil pastels....I like this new material for me...I like the softness but I want to explore the layer building that can be done.....like dj does....
Thanks for looking, jerry

Haven't tried them myself but certainly looks like you've got the hang of them. :D

i really like your drawing; it has great form and colour, the bottle transparency is great :)
do the pears seem to float a little?

Definitely getting there for first pastel.
I would like to see more depth though

Very nice, composition is good. I agree with ronaldb that the pairs seam to float. I believe the middle pair should be lower if it's sitting in front of the jar. Love the paper you've used :D

yes, ronald, they do float , eh? Thanks for noticing.
Me, too, Corrie...hopefully in the next one
Thanks for looking, laniers
