I can't quit painting pears! This one is painted with the most luscious, soft pastels ever.
A friend and I painted together today, so she let me use her pastels. Mine are really hard, thus hard to use, at least for me. I used what we call Windberg paper, because Dalhart Windberg and his sons make this special pastel paper. It has a wonderful tooth to it. I had just about given up on pastels, but after today, I may have to try it again.
