 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Lisa, a gorgeous painting with beautiful colours. 


Thanks Steve for letting us know that "kill" is the Dutch equivalent for stream or creek.  We live and learn every day.

 Thanks Patricia and Fiona.  It's really nice seeing all the familiar faces.   I can't wait to do some of the new classes and see what everyone else is working on

Steve, thanks for explaining the word "kill".

You're welcome. New York  State was  originally settled by the Dutch. The Van Rensselaer patroons founded the area where I live. And New York City was first called New Amsterdam. After the Brits took over, it got changed to "York" for the Duke of York.

Lisa, how do you like the Mi Teintes Touch? We will be visiting some friends in US this summer, sooo.... I get to 'load up' on supplies! Have been scouring the web to learn as much as I can about various pastel surfaces. I would really appreciate any insights.  :)

I really love it.  I think it's my favorite.  It's not so sandpaperish as some of the others where you blend and it feels like you've filed your fingerprints off!   I did find some inexpensive blenders to use on amazon when I use this paper but I really don't  need to use them.   And I like the way it looks when it's finished.  I normally use the flat side of the pastel paper because I like a very smooth finish and this paper really looks good.  It also can hold a ton of pastel.  The paper is stiffer and thicker than most so I don't tend to get little bends in the paper.  I think it would work well for a wet wash because it won't buckle.
