Looks like you are off to a fantastic start! What kind of pastels are these, I wonder. Oil based?

Looking forward to seeing more of this, as well as the paintings you planned on doing from your trip!

Thanks Beena! These are soft pastels, softies they are also called. Some dust and a bit messy but I love them. I think they give an oil painting quality to the finished piece. These pastels painting are like photo realism, feeding my control issues.

This looks interesting!!! I never really liked working in pastel, but I love the look of them when done by others. Have fun!

It looks beautiful so far...you take control over just any medium you get hold of, whether it be pencil or pen or quilting...!
