Ivybridge, De - United Kingdom

Thanks Heather! Yes please do get back if you have time. It may not be available in the UK, but I would be interested to know. I often use a French made pastel card by Sennelier (called Royal Sovereign, I think).

Saskatoon, SK - Canada

This is done on a grey/black paper, smooth surface, which I buy in bulk from a local art store ... I will check the name of it out and get back to you! I always do pastel of smooth surfaced paper as I do not like the texture of a paper to take away from the artwork when doing a portrait like this :)

Ivybridge, De - United Kingdom

Great technique! I particularly like the format and composition of this one. May I ask what surface you used? and is the deep grey its natural colour?
