Why thank you so much Joseph. You make me blush but I love it. LOL. I use La Carte Pastelcard made by Sennelier for 99% of my work but also like Clairefontaine's Pastelmat for fir and feathers. Do most of my large animals on suede matboard from the framer's shop. It's is all straight pastel, no turps no fixative...just pastel and no underpainting. If you check this out on my website www.ponting.ca you can see this one done step by step under Resources and other Good Stuff. I use a variety of pastels but love Unison, Terry Ludwig darks and Girault. Thanks again Joseph.....Di

how do you get such detail with Pastels. What paper do you use? What type of pastel do you use. Do you intermix other mediums at all. Do you use any solvents turpentime or liquin? I am just blown away. wonderful wonderful. Work.
