Pastel pencils and pans on Cansonm Mi Tientes

I wanted to do more to this but had to stop here because the paper wouldnt take any more layers of pastel.

Fantastic  work. As usual your detail is amazing.

How have you got on finding  bigger paper You said something about wanting to work on a bigger scale.

For some reason  over 60% of all portraits face in this direction

Very nice Tiger John. One of the reasons I enjoy acrylics so much is the ability to add one glaze layer after another until I'm happy with the result. I really want to try using pastelmat just to get a feel for the differences to other surfaces.

Thanks everyone for your great comments.  No doubt Pastelmat is the best though for sure xx
