Hiya Mary.......thanks for the compliment, but I'm not amazing really. :o)

Catching someone's likeness is always a challenge, no matter what medium you choose.......even more of a challenge if you're using pastels. When I do a pastel people portrait, I first try to capture their essence using a graphite pencil and then take it from there. If you use Pastelmat, then I've found that drawing with a hard graphite pencil works best, as it's a little easier to erase than soft graphite. Although as you've probably already found out, it's impossible to completely erase anything from Pastelmat.

Stay cool........Mark

Hi Mary, many thanks on your lovely comment that you made on the collie pup.

thank you for the comment on my deer...   I thinks I really like portraits on animals and humans... oh deer started as just a deer, but a face appeared in the sky.... I really love how you do fur,,, I think with pastels mostly?  I really have difficulty with fur.... I can't seem to abandon using water... watercolor and ink and water... then pastel... so I use blocks of watercolor paper...  I really like the paper textured.... I look at what you do and think about trying actual pastel paper....  do you think the pastel paper is important for getting the fur right?  as I write this your art is scrolling above... the light, the fur and reflection.. I really admire your ability
