Another Veveteen board

Well I bought a lot of this stuff. So better use it. I tried regular paper and just can't get the clarity of colors like on this stuff.

Luvy: Whatever you are doing, keep doing, because this is the best thing I have seen you do thus far. Wow - you keep talking about this velveteen board - is it actually a mat board? Have not seen anything in the art catalogs like it.

Luvy, this is really good. Looks more like an oil painting than a pastel. I'm not familiar with the velveteen board ~ is that the same thing as velour?

Great work Luvy - you're getting much more pastel on and the colors are more saturated - keep up the good work!

Waht a superb piece of work!

I love the wall texture and the portraiture of the standing woman is excellent.

Is the door meant to be the way it is, or is it just my eyes going wonky?

Apart from that, it's a great painting. Keep up the good work!

If this support suits your style, which it seems to do, then keep on using it!!!

I look forward to more.

Wow! That's a pastel? Amazing work, I love it. I love the subject matter too, very intersting. I love work with figures in it.
