I laughed so much reading the comments re the cow-y cloud
Thank you so much for the link to the Mungyo Gallery pastels Karen
as that made me realise that I've been using the student grade ones - although on the cover it's stated Soft Pastels for artists (blue and yellow boxes). Did a quick search online (as I know the Gallery line is not sold here) and found some sellers that will ship to my country. The hand rolled ones is interesting but they can get as expensive as Rembrandt and other brands due to the shipping costs. Will see how it goes. Meanwhile I'll continue to experiment with what I have
Your neighbour should be an excellent model for me Donna
! Hahaha! The one standing, facing the camera is soo adorable! I'm not sure if I'm right in saying that for pastels, the brand (quality) really matters...
Yes, I agree with you Jessica
, I was quite confused with Mungyo brands so I was really thankful for the links shared by Karen, to direct me to the correct line of the brand.
, that's super funny! Hahahah!
, thanks for the paper recommendations - I'm going to keep an eye for those that you've mentioned, when I next visit the art supply store.
Thank you so much for the info re Mungyo Gallery pastels, Peggy
. I'll be looking for some good offers online as I've mentioned that they are not sold here and the shipping fee can be pretty high...I'll need to make some comparisons - budget wise. May I know which is more pigmented? The handrolled ones or the gallery extra soft lines (round sticks)?
Thanks again everyone for the suggestions and links! Really appreciate that
Meanwhile, I did another experiment using the darkest shade (medium brown) from the Mi-Tientes pad:
