Hi Paul, I looked on youtube too when I first started using pastels because I had no idea how to use them. I haven't been using pastels very long, like I have paintings or colored pencils, but I think they're a lot of fun and I can do them quicker. Good luck with it and I hope it works out for you!

Hi Paul, I've tried lots of different papers too and finally I came up with these 3 for pastels...Canson Mi Tientes pastel paper, Pastelmat, and Strathmore pastel paper. You might even like to use the firm pastel (sticks)..they are less messy and dusty. Otherwise, I use the soft pastels along with pastel pencils. The pencils might be something you'd like, hardly no dust with those. You can do an entire painting using just the pencils. I have the CarbOthello pastel pencils that I bought on Amazon and they're real nice. I don't use fixative because I've been told by several artists that it can change the colors of your pastels.

Hi Paul, have you ever tried Canson Mi Tientes pastel paper? It has a rough side and a smoother side. I always use the smooth side. It's the best pastel paper other than Pastelmat that I've found. Pastelmat is good too but very expensive. I found a small set of soft pastels called Faber Castell (set of 24 short sticks) that work pretty good. You can also buy firm pastels by Prismacolor and I like these too. These are less dusty.

Hi Paul, thanks so much for your nice comment on my pastel painting. I had fun doing that one and putting myself in it. Love those flowers.

Hi Paul, thanks so much for your lovely comments on my artwork.  I appreciate you taking the time to comment   Manhattan nearly ended up in the bucket a few times and I had, at one point to put a set square on it to check the verticals of the building.
