As an afterthought, if you are thinking of trying it.... you could get a lighter grit paper, 600 or even 800 grit if you are doing fine detail.
Cheers, Val

Thank you for telling me, Val. The lightest paper I've managed to find was 320 grit, maybe I'll use it for less detailed work.

Fun time is over and time to get back to work. I think after the frog I'm ready for a challenge!
This time it is (  :2funny: ) a Monet. (  :2funny: :2funny: ) seriously! Maybe I'll sit my little frog on the lilies!  ^-^
Cheers, Val

I have finished my colour charts for the soft pastels, except for the pencils  :tongue:   I'll get to them later.   :heeha:   I want to play!   :yippee:

Will take photos of the charts and post them, simply delicious!!!  :doh: No, I didn't eat any......   :licklips:      :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Well, I had a go at "bettering" two of my previous pastels yesterday..... buggered them both! The background of my lovely frog is a horrendous pile of mud, and sadly, Byron's house is a write-off. Oh well, now I get to do them both again!  :heeha:     :doh:

I have all of my pastels (sort of) sorted, so I am beginning one of Dennis' lessons. The drawing is underway as we speak.... I should have done a tracing.... as usual, my freehand tends to get away from me and it is now bigger than my biggest paper!   :faint:   We'll just have to see how much I can fit on!  :2funny:   
Cheers, Val
