Hi there. Thanks a lot for your support
Sorry but I am having internship now, and I'm not home for most post.
However, I can tell about my tools. I have learnt much, from some past drafts and only very soft pastel pencils work, on Pastelmat. I am using Derwent Pastel (90pc), and keep away Pit Pastel (honfleur arbor) because too hard!
This paper is wonderful for portraits, to my opinion. But I had to master this type of paper to reach for the result you're watching now.
More to follow, once I'm back.
Very glad to see my little Tanya, being so appreciated!!!
