Oh Patricia, I think you did a Marvelous job.  He is so regal and I think extremely well painted .  Would love to try this one!  I have this sick obsession with buying different pastel brands from ebay, absolutely loving pastels since Dennis introduced them to us.  Here are some brands that I find very soft:  Sennelier, Schminke, Terry Ludwig, Unison,Blue Earth, Mount Vision (in that order, from very soft to soft).  I actually find Sennelier to be too soft for me.  I love Terry ludwig but you'd have to order online (he does sell single pastels in open stock).  The soft ones are expensive sold alone ($3 to $6 a piece in open stock here in US).  Dennis probably knows of some cheaper ones.  The great thing about the softies, is they just lay on top of what you have put down and give the painting some "spice" at the end.

 :thankyou:  so much Lynn for your super comments and for all the information given to me about the soft pastels. I really appreciate it and will make a note of all those brands, some of which I have never heard of.  I too, love pastels. Can't decide which medium I love best for they each hold such excitement when you get a painting "right". lol!! Thanks once again,


Patricia

I overworked it and no amount of fixative will let me work anymore.
Interesting technique Dennis.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Lovely painting of the Bald Eagle Natalie and yes, I found the techniques very interesting too.  What amazes me are the colours which are incorporated into the subjects ... one would never know or think of them, only a trained eye and master of colour would know.   Patricia

Excellent, Natalie :clap: :clap: :clap:  It is much more advanced compared to all the previous and you both have done well. O0
Natalie, the overworking causes the paper to lose it's tooth.

Wonderful paint works from you Patricia and Natalie the Bald Eagle is a proud bird and I think you both have done him proud I have used Faber Castell pastels in the past they are semi soft but it's a matter of choice but that aside you girls have done a wonderful job.  Ray
Kindest regards
