Re: 3 Apples

Welcome to the pastel forum, kipatl! We're so happy you joined us! It appears you have improved your technique since third grade. I checked out your other work on WC and you know what you're doing. Great volume on the apples! I hope you'll share a few more soon.

Gorgeous apples. Welcome here. You will become addicted to pastels like the rest of us. See you again....I'm smiling.

Re: 3 Apples

I agree: gorgeous apples! Since you haven't used pastels in a few years I think you deserve to try out some of the wonderful variety out there and share more of your work with us, of course!

Re: 3 Apples

I borrowed a friend's Winsor & Newton set of 30 "portrait" pastels. I'm thinking about buying a set of Mungyo 48 half sticks for about $40 from Amazon. What do you think? I don't want to get too deep in with the good stuff just yet.

Re: 3 Apples

Well, hello, neighbor! And DO tell me if there is a mailing list for workshops sponsored by the Art guild in the Greensboro area! I'm not at all familiar with the Mungyo pastels. But the Richeson Hand Rolled sets are also not terribly expensive and they do a GREAT job. Check prices at rexart.com. By the way, there is a pastel workshop for beginners being taught next weekend in Forsyth (Feb 21 and 22).... two days for $125... and I believe there is still a spot available if you are interested. If so, please email me at [email protected] and I'll give you more info. I think the time is 9 to 4 each day.
Mike

Re: 3 Apples

It has an oil-ish painterly quality to it... really well done. I always say you can make pastel look like anything you want.
