Pastel and under painting.

I have several contradictory information on under painting with pastel. I use under pairing often in certain areas. Some artist said they never use under painting. What's the true data?

People have all king of energy that they use every day in life. And the energy is used in so many ways. Artists of any kind use their energy on "POSITIVE CREATION" and the more positive creation they put out there, the more energy they have. The more positive energy they have the more interesting and intriguing will be their art! 

Just want to express my thoughts!!!

Ugo, many thanks for your comment on my Turtle. Spent some time on this one and the hardest part was his shell just above his front flipper where it dips..
