New pastels

The missus came back from Stanley today and had a present for me, box of 16 daler-rowney soft pastels. Banged out a quick 10 minute sketch of some flames just to try them out on brown ingres paper (not my favourite paper for pastels but worked just fine with these, very nice, fat, soft pastels, I'll see how they compare to the Unisons that are on their way)


  1. mmm the smell of new supplies. I have been gifted with gouache from my sweety.

  2. Aye, it's nice to be given a few bits of new stuff, I wouldn't have had a chance to try these particular pastels if they hadn't been baught for me and they're great.
