Thankyou Charles for the link to Claudes' site.
I am just trying out pastels for the first time, & was so inspired by her Cat portraits.
I'm not used to having to keep my mind on clean fingers, but have managed so far not to spoil anything. But then I haven't done very much other than pick them up... try them on this type of paper.....see how this color looks on that...how well do these colors blend together......and am I confidant yet to accept a mucked up project. Well, you know how it goes.
