I sometimes use Prismacolors with my Oil pastels...I never have gotten the hang of the pastel pencils....and it's kind of nice because I can pick a same color and push the ops where I want without messing up...hope you'll show us the results, people here mix watercolor, solvents, pencils etc with the pastels...

Thanks for looking... Raye

Yummy! This is making my mouth water! I've never used the pastel pencils and only recently found out that they exist! Oh, dear! Somebody hide the car keys and debit card! A new toy to play with! lol

Very nice work!

Thank u all for the great comments, I have only just tried the pastel pencils to speed up my work. I have used pastels, but being somewhat of a neat freak, can't tolerate the mess. I find I have more control over the pencils. As far as my technique, I did an underpainting with the pastel pencils, than added layers of cp very tight....
Thanks for looking, Raye
