We will start using Pastel Pencils as from Lesson #9 "West Coast Farm".


The pencils will normally only be used for the finer details and NOT for the major part of the drawing.
Try and get a set no smaller than 12.


Jerry's Artarama has a sale on right at this moment. The pencils sets are the top 3 of the following page:

NOTE: If you do not have pastel pencils this will not stop you from completing ANY of the future lessons.
Pastel Pencils are NOT an absolute requirement but it will make your life easier, especially with the smaller paintings or where you, personally, want to show fine detail.

There will be many painting in the course where pencils will not be needed.

DanielSmith.com has free shipping on all orders over $50 until Feb 24 midnight Pacific standard time USA.

So if you are buying pastels and need a few Watercolors or oils, it is worth a look.  ;)

 :thankyou:  Dennis and Sue for the information.  I have already purchased a set of pastel pencils which I just love for their cleanliness (very little dust).  Patricia
